Academic Publication Grants
TAA members can apply for a grant of up to $1,000 to offset expenses incurred in publishing already accepted print scholarly journal articles and academic books, including academic journal page costs or university press subventions; the cost of preparing artwork, charts, diagrams, or images to be included in accepted journal articles or academic books; and journal reprint costs. (Non-members can apply for grants of up to $250.)
Grants are also available for expenses incurred as a direct result of research leading to publication of a book or article, including:
- Interlibrary loan costs, or computer time costs incurred in the analysis of data, leading to publication of academic print materials.
- Costs of single photocopies of source materials for research related to the publication of an article or book.
- Costs of secretarial services incurred in the preparation of academic print materials.
- Cost of permissions incurred in the preparation of academic print materials for reprinting images or quoted material.
Grant funds are also available for costs incurred by the author for textbook projects, provided the textbook is not realistically expected to yield royalties sufficient to recover the costs for which the grant is sought.

Grants are awarded to individuals, not institutions. Indirect costs are not allowable.
Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis.
The amount awarded will be proportional to the number of authors of the work who are members of TAA at the time of the award.
