The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) is delighted to announce that it has received funding from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to support publication activities critical to both current and future archaeological research.
The Samuel H. Kress Grant for Research and Publication in Classical Art and Architecture funds publication preparation, or research leading to publication, undertaken by professional members of the AIA. Its purpose is to assist scholars in preparing, completing and publishing results of their research in Classical Art and Architecture. Awards may be used for research leading to the publication of an art historical monograph or for costs associated with publication, such as image licensing. Applicants still in the research stage must have a publication contract in place with either a non-profit or commercial publisher. Research may be undertaken at domestic or international universities, libraries or study centers, or through excavation or preservation projects of Classical sites. Proposals must include a timetable for completion of the manuscript, specific plans for publication including budget information, and a description of how the grant will be utilized. The deadline for application is November 1 and March 1, annually. Two grants of $3,000 each are available; it is possible that larger amounts may be awarded at the discretion of the AIA review committee.
Established in 1929, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation supports the work of individuals and institutions engaged with the appreciation, interpretation, preservation, study and teaching of the history of European art and architecture from antiquity to the dawn of the modern era. The AIA is grateful to the Kress Foundation for making important archaeological research possible through its funding.
