You may not apply for both a Translation Project under this deadline (January 15, 2020) and a Literature Fellowship (in prose or poetry) under the 2020 deadline (when fellowships in poetry are offered).
The Arts Endowment’s
support of a project may begin any time between January 1, 2021, and January 1, 2022, and extend for up to two years.
Grant Program Description Through fellowships to published translators, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) supports projects for the translation of specific works of prose, poetry, or drama from other languages into English.
We encourage translations of writers and of work that are not well represented in English translation.
All proposed projects must be for creative translations of literary material into English.
The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and value.
Priority will be given to projects that involve work that has not previously been translated into English.
