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 merit.
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.
The National Endowment for the Arts is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and fostering mutual support for the diverse beliefs and values of all individuals and groups.
