Publication Subvention

Faculty may apply for subvention grants of up to $1,500. These grants will contribute solely to lowering the purchase price of a book or other publication.

Applicants should provide a letter of request; a synopsis of the project; a publication contract from a reputable academic or university press; or academic imprint of a commercial/trade press; along with evidence of peer review. The Board will not consider requests when securing a subvention is a condition of publication.

Applicants should submit materials electronically to leah.kalmanson@drake.edu. The following deadlines will be used:

The Board will meet in early September and early November to consider applications that will draw on the budget for fiscal year ’20. These funds must be used before July 1, 2020. To ensure that your request is given consideration at either of these meetings, please submit applications before

  • August 30, 2019, for consideration at the September meeting, or
  • November 1, 2019, for consideration at the November meeting.

Remaining fiscal year ‘20 funds will continue to be awarded in the spring, based on availability, and the Board will begin accepting applications for fiscal year ‘21. Spring deadlines will be updated after the September meeting.
