AMS Subventions for Publications

Through funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Gladys Kriebel Delmas Foundation, and the generous contributions of many individual donors, the Publications Committee of the American Musicological Society makes available funds to help with expenses involved in the publication of works of musical scholarship, including books, articles, special issues of journals, and works in non-print media.

Individual authors or editors, or their sponsoring organization, society, or department, may apply for assistance to defray costs not normally covered by publishers, such as illustrations, musical examples, facsimiles, accompanying audio or video examples, and permissions. (Author subventions required by publishers are not eligible for reimbursement under the AMS program of subventions for individuals. In such cases, publishers should apply directly to the AMS under the "publishers' subventions" program.)

We encourage the submission of proposals from scholars at all stages of their careers. We welcome proposals for projects that make use of newer technologies. Festschriften, essay collections, and the like are ordinarily not recommended for subvention.

Applications for any amount up to $2,500 will receive consideration. No individual can receive a subvention more than once in a three-year period.

Deadlines: Feb. 15; Aug. 15
