Furthermore, grants in publishing, a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund, is currently accepting spring grant applications.
Furthermore grants support nonfiction books having to do with cultural history; conservation and preservation; art, architecture, and design; and related public issues.
Spring applications should be submitted online through our website no later than midnight EST March 1.
Furthermore applicants must be 501(c)3 organizations. Fifty to sixty grants are given annually and the program has now assisted over 1300 publication projects and disbursed nearly $8 million.
Grants are awarded to help meet such specific needs as writing, research, indexing, editing, translation, design, photography, illustration, and printing and binding.
Book proposals to which a publisher is already committed and for which there is a feasible distribution plan are preferred.
The Alice Award, administered by Furthermore, is also currently accepting submissions with a deadline of 1 April. The Alice is an annual book prize given to an exemplary illustrated book that makes a valuable contribution to its field and demonstrates high standards of production. The awardee receives $25,000 and the short-listed books each receive $5,000.
