We are proud to offer author awards and publication subventions of up to $7,000 each year, divided among as many applications that qualify. The intention of these awards is to assist authors and editors with the costs associated with publishing (design, proofreading, copyright costs, reproduction fees, digital production, etc.) books that have been accepted for publication by the University of California Medical Humanities Press (UCMHP). Before applying, authors or editors should consult with the UCMHP General Editor on the status of their proposed manuscript and appropriate costs necessary to advance the scholarship to publication in the relevant format. Awards are reviewed and allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis, and subject to the availability of remaining award funds. Awards are provided on the condition the funds are used to support the costs of publication as described in the application form. Before awards can be processed, recipients must also complete a W-9 form to report miscellaneous income.
