The Samuel H. Kress Foundation is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations for scholarly projects designed to enhance the appreciation and understanding of European art and architecture, from antiquity to the dawn of the modern era.
Through its History of Art program, the foundation will award grants to projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects; the development and dissemination of scholarly databases; documentation projects; museum exhibitions and publications; photographic campaigns; scholarly catalogs and publications; and technical and scientific studies. The program also supports activities that permit art historians to share their expertise through international exchanges, professional meetings, conferences, symposia, consultations, the presentation of research, and other professional events.
In previous years, grant amounts have ranged from $1,000 to $100,000.
To be eligible, nonprofit organizations, including supporting foundations of European institutions, must be recognized as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
