In keeping with its mission and longstanding commitment to address the lack of diversity in publishing, the MIT Press announces the launch of the Diverse Voices Grant Program. The Program will expand funding for new work by authors whose voices have been conspicuously underrepresented in publishing. To help fuel greater equity, grants will provide direct financial assistance to scholars from across the arts, humanities, and sciences. The grant program will be supported by the Press’s longstanding Fund for Diverse Voices.
The MIT Press welcomes applications from new or returning authors from diverse backgrounds. Candidates who have significant personal experience or engagement with communities that are underrepresented in scholarly publishing are strongly encouraged to apply. Diverse Voices Grants will be administered on a rolling basis throughout the year and the funding may be used for research, travel, child care, developmental editing, permissions, or any other costs associated with the writing process.
