JAHF First Book Subvention Prize

Japan Art History Forum First Book Subvention Prize

The JAHF First Book Subvention Prize is awarded once a year to a book project that will make a substantial contribution to the field of Japanese art history, broadly defined. Applications will be judged based on the overall quality of the project and the need for financial support.

The award is for a maximum of $4,000. The winner can choose to use the award to defray publishing costs (in which case JAHF will send the funds to the publisher) or to defray the cost of acquiring permission to use images (in which case JAHF will reimburse the author, contingent upon the author providing itemized receipts).

The First Book Subvention Prize is made possible by Japan Art History Forum membership dues and by a generous donation from Felice Fischer.


Eligibility:
The award may be granted only to first books, single-authored.

Applicant authors must have been members of JAHF for at least two years prior to the application and must currently be JAHF members.

The subvention will be awarded only for completed manuscripts that have a contract with an established academic publisher.

Manuscripts must be in English.


Application Process:
