The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) is delighted to announce that
it has received funding from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to support
publication activities critical to both current and future archaeological

The *Samuel H. Kress Grant for Research and Publication in Classical Art
and Architecture* funds publication preparation, or research leading to
publication, undertaken by professional members of the AIA. Its purpose is
to assist scholars in preparing, completing and publishing results of their
research in Classical Art and Architecture. Awards may be used for research
leading to the publication of an art historical monograph or for costs
associated with publication, such as image licensing. Applicants still in
the research stage must have a publication contract in place with either a
non-profit or commercial publisher. Research may be undertaken at domestic
or international universities, libraries or study centers, or through
excavation or preservation projects of Classical sites. Proposals must
include a timetable for completion of the manuscript, specific plans for
publication including budget information, and a description of how the
grant will be utilized. The deadlines for application are March 1 and November
1, annually. Two grants of $3,000 each are available; it is possible that
larger amounts may be awarded at the discretion of the AIA review
committee. Full details and application materials are available on our
website at

In addition, Kress Foundation funding is making it possible for the AIA to
begin publishing *Outstanding Papers on topics related to Classical Art
History and Architecture* that are presented at the each year at the AIA
Annual Meeting. The AIA will select papers to be published in this volume
from the pool of papers and colloquia presented at the Annual Meeting; no
separate application is required.

Established in 1929, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation supports the work of
individuals and institutions engaged with the appreciation, interpretation,
preservation, study and teaching of the history of European art and
architecture from antiquity to the dawn of the modern era. The AIA is
grateful to the Kress Foundation for making important archaeological
research possible through its funding.
