The Samuel H. Kress Foundation welcomes proposals to its History of Art grant program for scholarly projects with the potential to enhance the appreciation and understanding of European art and architecture, from antiquity to the early nineteenth century.
Through the program, grants will be awarded to projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects, the development 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.
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.
The application portal opens February 15 and Letters of Intent are due by March 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by April 1, 2021.
