The College Art Association will offer two publishing grant opportunities this fall to support scholarly manuscripts on the history of art and related subjects: the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant and the Millard Meiss Publication Fund Grant. The publisher must submit the application to either or both awards.

Thanks to the generosity of the Wyeth Foundation, CAA awards a publication grant to support book-length scholarly manuscripts on the history of American art and related subjects. American art is defined in this grant program as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico prior to 1970. Books eligible for the Wyeth grant have been accepted by a publisher on merit, but require a subsidy to be published in the most desirable form.

Meiss grants support book-length scholarly manuscripts in any period of the history of art and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher but cannot be published in the fullest form without a subsidy.

The deadline for both opportunities is October 1, 2010. Publishers may apply to both award programs, though only one award can be given per title. Awards are made at the discretion of the jury for each fund and vary according to merit, need, and number of applications. The Wyeth grant will be awarded in late November; the Meiss award will be announced shortly thereafter.
