MIT Press Launches Grant Program for Diverse Voices
The MIT Press has announced the launch of the Grant Program for Diverse Voices, an initiative that will expand funding for new work by historically underrepresented authors in the arts, humanities, and sciences. The grant program will be supported by the Press’s existing Fund for Diverse Voices.
Grants may support a variety of needs, including research travel, copyright permission fees, family care, developmental editing, and any other costs associated with the research and writing process. Diverse Voices grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be evaluated twice a year, in the spring and the fall. Authors interested in applying for a grant should contact the MIT Press acquisitions editor in the author's field. Grant winners are selected by the Grant Program for Diverse Voices Committee.
