Kress Foundation Invites Applications for Scholarly European Art Projects
The Samuel H. Kress Foundation is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations to its History of Art grant program for scholarly projects designed to enhance the appreciation and understanding of European art and architecture, from antiquity to the dawn of the modern era.
Grants are awarded in support of projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects, the development and dissemination of scholarly databases, documentation projects, museum exhibitions and publications, photographic campaigns, scholarly catalogs and publications, and technical and scientific studies. The program also supports activities that permit art historians to share their expertise through international exchanges, professional meetings, conferences, symposia, consultations, the presentation of research, and other professional events.
In previous years, grant amounts have ranged between $1,000 and $100,000.
To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization as per the Internal Revenue Code, or a supporting foundation of a European institution.
