The Center offers a limited number of small grants that provide support to eligible faculty with book publication contracts. Grants will be distributed on an as-needed basis and are dependent on available funding. Support funds may be used for expenses related to publications near final in-press stage such as:
Applications for book subventions require a contract stating the specified subvention requirement. Monographs will have first priority, however, edited volumes of all types are eligible to receive support. Indexing and image development or permissions assistance require a book contract and a proposed contract with a service provider. Requests for support will be evaluated by an advisory board selection committee each term.
Tenure-track or tenured faculty who have secured publication contracts for a monograph or edited collection. Assistant professors and former Center research fellows are especially encouraged to apply.
