    This form should be completed by a faculty member applicant.

    The NYU Center for the Humanities makes available a limited number of grants in support of the publication of books with a humanistic focus. For costs incurred in the publication of monographs, edited collections, or translations, the Center will provide assistance of up to $1,500, awarded on a competitive basis. Proof of a publishing contract and a budget for expenses are required. Funds must be used for costs directly related to the publication.

    We invite applications from faculty in full-time positions at NYU in the humanities with book contracts in hand. Special consideration is given to faculty at the early stages of their career. Awards can be made up to $1500 depending on need. Faculty are eligible to apply once every five years.

    Up to $1500 per successful applicant can be applied toward the following costs incurred in the process of publishing a monograph or edited volume: assistance with obtaining permissions for images and other copyrighted materials, indexing, and costs associated with translation. Funds are not available for proof-reading, travel expenses, or book promotion/marketing.
