Read about the grant committee and Caxton Club Grants:

Grant Committee Gears Up for Increased Role: More grants, new kinds of grants, and additional outreach are all in the cards” by Lisa Pevtzow in the August issue (PDF) of The Caxtonian.

Since 2002, the Caxton Club has awarded thirty-two recipients with grants totaling over $60,000.

The Club, founded in 1895 in Chicago, is devoted to the literary study and promotion of the arts pertaining to the production of books.

For the 2015-16 academic year, Caxton Club grants have been offered to Midwestern graduate students with projects in the following areas: bibliography, book arts, history of the book, library studies, print culture studies, and zines. There are also grants available for undergraduates completing book projects at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; and early career Rare Book School attendees.

Read the press release on the 2015-16 grants to seven book artists and researchers.
