Starting in December 2004, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) will accept grant proposals from individuals to "encourage translations of writers and of work which are insufficiently represented in English translation. All proposed projects must be for creative translations of published literary material into English. The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and value. Priority will be given to projects that involve work that has not yet been translated into English."
Awards will range from $10,000 to $20,000 and will only be awarded to published translators. Other conditions apply.
