The George and Ann Bass Endowment for Nautical Archaeology Publications, established in 2018, honors two of INA’s Founders and supports a cause that is very close to their hearts: the final publication of archaeological material excavated by INA. This Endowment provides up to $25,000/year in funding to one or two worthy applicant(s).
Applicants may seek funding for expenses such as: faculty leave to support dedicated writing time, travel to conduct relevant research leading directly to publication, manuscript preparation (artifact photography, illustration, the hiring of necessary support staff), and subvention (indexing, color plates, expanded site plans, etc).
To view the grant guidelines or apply for funding, download the application form here. Applications must be submitted by October 1.
Finally, award recipients who submit the completed manuscript for publication in the Nautical Archaeology Series of Texas A&M University (TAMU) Press will be eligible for additional subvention funding (amount to be determined) provided by TAMU Press.
