Publication Support Grant Application

Applications due by 12 October 2017

ABOUT: Up to three grants per semester of $1,500 each are available to support the costs of publishing a manuscript of  humanities-related scholarship. Priority will be given to original scholarship. This grant is intended to cover costs for substantive enhancements to the manuscript which are required for publication (graphics, maps, tables, permissions, subventions, figures, translation costs, and the like). Editing costs will not be given as high a priority as other substantive enhancements requested by the publisher. Indexing costs will not be considered. All manuscripts must be accepted for publication or in press when the request is submitted. This grant is not available retroactively for works that have already been printed.

Publications receiving support must acknowledge “The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research.”

ELIGIBILITY: Tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure track* faculty members in affiliated departments are invited to apply.
* Non-tenure track faculty employed by Texas A&M University are invited to apply (PostDocs are not eligible).

Applicants are strongly encouraged to either attend a Glasscock Center Grant Writing Workshop or consult with a Glasscock Center Advisory Committee member.

ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Please upload the following items or email as an attachment to glasscock@tamu.edu:

  • Acceptance letter from the press or, preferably, a letter indicating the current publication status of the manuscript
  • Letter or electronic correspondence from the press, editing service, or other appropriate service indicating the  anticipated costs for which funding is sought
