The Book Subvention Support program provides matching funds to tenured/tenure-track faculty who have the opportunity to publish a scholarly book that requires a subvention. Applications are accepted throughout the year and awards are made on an ongoing basis. Specific guidelines and application information can be found on the Review website in the "Ongoing Programs" category. Scholarly books in all disciplines are eligible for support, but textbooks, re-publications of previous works, and books produced by vanity or predatory publishers are not eligible.
To request these funds please email the CAST Associate Dean Cara Rabe-Hemp (cerabe@Ilstu.edu) an attached copy of the paid receipt from the book publisher. Upon the submission and review of relevant paperwork the CAST Research Office will provide up to $200 toward this expense. The University Research and Sponsored Programs Office provides additional assistance https://research.illinoisstate.edu/funding/internal/.
For more information, please contact the CAST Research Office, Turner Hall Room 103, (309) 438-2739.
