National Endowment for the Arts: Literature Translation Fellowship 2012

by:

The United States of America gives great importance to literature and artistic heritage. The US government has established an independent agency, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), which offers support and funding to projects manifesting artistic excellence.



The NEA's work is geared towards providing support for the excellence in new and established arts forms; bringing arts to all Americans, and ultimately providing leadership in arts education.

In line with this goal, the NEA has constituted the Literature Fellowship for Translation Projects grant. The grant provides fellowships for published translators as they translate specific works of prose, poetry or drama.


The NEA encourages published translators to creatively translate literary materials which are not very well represented in the English language.


In addition, the NEA will give priority to literary pieces that have not been translated to English before. The translated piece's literary excellence and value will also affect the rigorous process of grantee selection.


The Literature Fellowship for Translation Project grants are for $12,500 and $25,000.


Interested applicants are required to submit their applications electronically to the Grants.gov website. Deadline of such applications will be on January 5, 2012.
