NEA Literature Fellowships: Translation Projects

Through fellowships to published translators, the Arts Endowment supports projects for the translation of specific works of prose, poetry, or drama from other languages into English. They encourage translations of writers and of work which are not well represented in English translation. All proposed projects must be for creative translations of published literary material into English. The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and value. Grants are for $12,500 or $25,000, depending upon the artistic excellence and merit of the project. To be eligible an individual either alone or in collaboration, must have: published a total of at least 20 pages of translations of creative literature into English in literary magazines, anthologies, or books; or published a translation into English of a novel or a volume of at least 20 pages of fiction, poetry, or belles-lettres; or translated into English at least one full-length play that has been produced by a professional theater company.
