The Institute for Comparative Modernities at Cornell University is accepting applications from translators for a grant of up to $5,000 for translations of works from the Global South (Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean) into English.
The awards will range from $1000 to $5000, depending on the scope of the project. Selected works may be retranslations of old, classic texts, or previously untranslated works, collections of poetry, prose, or critical theory. The project may be a work-in-process, or a new project manageable within the scope of the award. This is a non-resident, remote fellowship designed to allow the recipient to complete the work outside of Cornell University.
Find out more here about how to submit, and apply by December 1! https://icm.as.cornell.edu/application-cycle-open-icm-global-south-translation-fellowships-2022
