When a reputable academic press initiates a request, the Institute may make a subvention to support the publication of manuscripts, if funds are available. Similarly, the Institute will consider a subvention to support a scholarly or artistic sound or video recording upon request by the producer. Please contact the Institute office (Stephanie Hasse at 631-5730 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for guidelines and information when a publisher or producer requests a subvention. You must have a contract from the publisher before ISLA will negotiate with them. The typical range for a book subvention is from $1,000 to $3,000.
Indexing and Copyediting Support
ISLA will provide up to $1,200 to cover indexing or copyediting costs for faculty book projects.
These funds must be used to hire a professional editor/indexer.
- Please supply information about the indexing or editing services you are using in your proposal.
- Limit: one indexing and/or copyediting grant per book and academic year.
- Recipients of publication support must acknowledge ISLA in the final product.
No publication grant applications are accepted between June 1 and July 31.
