The Arts Endowment’s
support of a project may begin any time between January 1, 2022, and January 1, 2023, and extend for up to two years.
Grant Program Description Through fellowships to published translators, the National Endowment for the Arts (Arts Endowment) supports projects for the translation of specific works of prose, poetry, or drama from other languages into English.
The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and value.
We encourage translations of writers and of work that are not well represented in English, as well as work that has not previously been translated into English.
Competition for fellowships is rigorous.
Potential applicants should consider carefully whether their work will be competitive at the national level.
