CFP: 2019 ASEEES First Book Subvention

Deadline to apply: February 1, 2019 and September 1, 2019

In 2014, the ASEEES Board of Directors voted to dedicate $10,000 per year from the Association’s endowment dividends for subvention of books by first-time authors who have already secured publishing contracts. Multiple awards of up to $2,500 will be made on a competitive basis each year, with funds paid directly to the press.

A multidisciplinary committee of senior scholars will evaluate applications; the committee will also include a publishing professional as a non-voting member who will advise on budgetary matters. In deciding how to allocate these funds, the committee takes into account both the scholarly significance of the book and the demonstrated need for subvention support. Applications are invited from all disciplines.
