Barr Ferree Fund for Publications Open for Applications

March 1, 2019

The Barr Ferree Fund for Publications is open for applications with a deadline of April 15, 2019. Managed through the department, the Barr Ferree Fund awards subventions to support the publication of books by faculty, researchers, and graduate alumni (up to 15 years after the date of their defense) on the history of architecture and the fine arts. Publishers apply for the subventions. The fund will also reimburse authors for the cost of reproduction fees and complimentary books for owners of image rights. For graduate alumni, the grants are intended primarily to help young scholars get their first volume into print, and publishers can use the subventions to support the cost of enhancements such as additional illustrations or to add color illustrations. For more detailed information about the subventions or the application process:
