The College Art Association (CAA) and Terra Foundation for American Art announce the opening of the 2018 Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant. The grant provides financial support for the publication of book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art circa 1500–1980. The grant considers submissions covering what is the current-day geographic United States.

Awards of up to USD 15,000 will be made in three distinct categories:
–Grants to US publishers for manuscripts considering American art in an international context
–Grants to non-US publishers for manuscripts on topics in American art
–Grants for the translation of books on topics in American art to or from English.

“The Terra Foundation award is unique in that it supports publishers in the United States and abroad and also provides funds for authors of award-winning books to attend the CAA Annual Conference,” says Betty Leigh Hutcheson, Director of Publications at CAA. “Scholars outside the United States who receive travel grants can expand their networks, gain exposure to new ideas, meet publishers at the Book and Trade Fair, and apply to present papers at the CAA Annual Conference. The success of the Terra Foundation program is grounded in the high quality of manuscripts CAA receives each year and our ability to financially support these projects. CAA has played a vital role in this process for the past three years, which is particularly gratifying as we see awarded projects reach completion.”
