  • National Endowment for the Arts Celebrating Literature in Translation | Translation Project Fellowships Through fellowships to published translators, the National Endowment for the Arts supports projects for the translation of specific works of prose, poetry, or drama from other languages into English. The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and merit. We encourage translations of writers and of work that are not well represented in English, as well as work that has not previously been translated into English.  Competition for fellowships is rigorous. Potential applicants should consider carefully whether their work will be competitive at the national level. The National Endowment for the Arts is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and fostering mutual support for the diverse beliefs and values of all individuals and groups. Applications must be submitted electronically through Grants.gov, the federal government’s online application system. The Grants.gov system must receive your validated and accepted application no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on January 12, 2022. Late applications are not accepted. Applicants will receive notification of awards and rejections no sooner than December 2022. Our support for a project may begin any time between January 1, 2023, and January 1, 2024, and extend for up to two years. Grants are up to $25,000.
