Millard Meiss Publication Fund

Call for Applications

Twice a year, CAA awards grants through the Millard Meiss Publication Fund to support book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of art and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits, but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy. Thanks to the generous bequest of the late Prof. Millard Meiss, CAA began awarding these publishing grants in 1975.

Books eligible for a Meiss grant must currently be under contract with a publisher and be on a subject in the arts or art history. Although only publishers may submit an application, authors must be current CAA members. The deadlines for the receipt of applications are April 1 and October 1 of each year. Please review the Application Guidelines and the Application Process, Schedule, and Checklist for complete instructions.
