The College Art Association offers a robust program of publishing grants to authors and publishers of scholarly books in art history, visual studies, and related subjects. Whether you’re in the middle of your application or just thinking about applying, this Question and Answer session (recorded 15 January 2014) will be a valuable resource for you.
Join CAA’s director of publications Betty Leigh Hutcheson and editorial manager Alex Gershuny to get practical tips and advice about CAA’s grants, as well as answers to all your questions! You’ll also hear from a former juror about how the awards committee evaluates proposals, and from a past grant recipient about their experience of the application process.
Submit your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter with the hashtag #caapubgrants. Questions are welcomed about any of CAA’s three publishing grants: the Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award, the Millard Meiss Publication Fund, and the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant.

The spring deadline for the Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award and the Millard Meiss Publication Fund is March 15, 2014. The fall deadline for the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant is September 15, 2014. This Q&A will cover all three grants.
