In order to qualify, students must meet the following criteria:

Description: U.S. and international archaeological professionals will receive this grant to assist in book-length publications in the field of classical archaeology (defined as Greek, Roman, and Etruscan archaeology and art history).

Application requirements for the AIA Publication Subvention Program are:

  • Application form
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Nomination
Additional Information: This program offers subventions from the AIA's von Bothmer Publication Fund in support of new book-length publications in the field of classical archaeology (defined as Greek, Roman, and Etruscan archaeology and art history). Particularly welcome are projects that publish the work of first-time authors or represent the publication of final reports of primary data from sites already excavated or surveyed, but are still unpublished. Nominations should be submitted by eligible non-profit publishers, such as university or museum presses, to the AIA Publications Subvention Committee, who will review submissions and grant the subventions. All manuscripts submitted for consideration must conform to AIA's policies regarding the initial publication of undocumented antiquities. All authors of manuscripts must be members of the Archaeological Institute of America, though grants are open to scholars and nonprofit publishers of all nations. These subventions are not intended to support the publication of previously published works (including collections of previously published essays) or congress proceedings. Applications are judged on the basis of merit and need for financial assistance. In general, the purpose of the grant is to support authors and presses in the publication of books of the highest scholarly and intellectual merit that cannot be anticipated to generate adequate return. Readers' reports, which are of considerable significance for the committee's evaluations, should be signed and dated and will be treated with full confidentiality. The reports should be recent in date (no more than three years old) and should not be simply endorsements of the project. The Publications Subvention Committee does not admit reports written by the author's dissertation adviser or other interested parties, such as a series editor.

Award Amount: An average of $5,000 annually, non-renewable. Smaller or larger amounts may be awarded at the discretion of the committee.  The total dollars awarded for this scholarship is $5,000.
