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 shasse@nd.edu) 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.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
