Academic & Textbook Writing Grants

TAA offers two forms of grants to assist members and non-members with some of the expenses related to publishing their academic works and textbooks.

  • Publication Grants provide reimbursement for eligible expenses directly related to bringing an academic book, textbook, or journal article to publication.
  • Contract Review Grants reimburse eligible expenses for legal review when you have a contract offer for a textbook or academic monograph or other scholarly work that includes royalty arrangements.
