The fund for diverse voices
The Fund for Diverse Voices supports new work by authors who bring excluded and chronically underrepresented perspectives to the fields in which the Press publishes across the sciences, arts, and humanities. It enables the Press to offer competitive advances to accomplished authors, cover the cost of high-quality production features (e.g. color images, or commissioned art) that may not be financially feasible otherwise, and ensure that these works reach the widest readership possible through expanded marketing efforts.
In addition, this fund underpins the MIT Press Grant Program for Diverse Voices, which supports authors from diverse backgrounds who are underrepresented in their field. Both current and prospective authors with strong proposals for a book-length work who have significant personal experience or engagement with communities that are underrepresented in scholarly publishing are encouraged to contact the MIT Press acquisitions editor in the field in which the author publishes.
