Artist Calls and Opportunities: NEH Accepting Applications for Scholarly Edition/Translation Projects

Deadline: 12-09-2014

The National Endowment for the Humanities, an independent federal agency established by the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act of 1965, is dedicated to supporting research, education, preservation, and public programs in the humanities.

The endowment currently is accepting applications through its Scholarly Editions and Translations grants program. Grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded to support the preparation of editions and translations of pre-existing texts and documents that currently are inaccessible or available only in inadequate editions. Grants are designed to support full- or part-time activities for periods of one (minimum) to three (maximum) years.

Projects must be undertaken by a team of at least one editor or translator and one other staff member. Grants typically support editions and translations of significant literary, philosophical, and historical material, but other types of work, such as musical notation, also are eligible.

Applicants should demonstrate familiarity with the best practices recommended by the Association for Documentary Editing or the Modern Language Association Committee on Scholarly Editions. Translation projects also should explain the approach adopted for the particular work to be translated.

Visit the NEH website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, information about past recipients, and application instructions.
