      Translation Project), when 35 publishers from 19 countries received
      support for the publication of 46 titles, the project continues in

      women's studies literature.

      Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech
      Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakstan, Kosova, Kyrgyzstan,
      Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Poland,
      Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan,
      Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Yugoslavia.

      APPLICATION GUIDELINES

      The focus of the year 2000 competition is "Women in Conflict" and
      "Minority Women", and titles from these areas will be given
      preference in the decision process

      the competition announcement is accompanied by a list of titles
      recommended for translation on topics such as Women in Conflict,
      Minority Women, Gender in the Social Sciences, Violence against Women
      and Women's Health developed by NWP, Publishers, however, may also
      apply with similar titles from outside these lists. The lists can be
      found at <www.osi.hu/cpd/women2000list.htm=20

      the grants will support primarily publication of translations of
      academic or scholarly books on women's issues (not including
      fiction); translations must be into one of the languages of the
      countries listed above

      applications are accepted only from publishers in these countries,
      and grants are paid directly to the publisher; translators seeking
      support for a project should find a suitable publisher to make the
      application

      CPD does not provide copies of the original titles for review. Sets
      of titles on Women and Violence are available in a number of
      libraries in the region. Titles with copies available in the library
      of Central European University - Budapest are marked with [*] in the
      project title lists.

      grant requests should not exceed $5,000, and publication is expected
      within 24 months

      publishers applying for these grants must have recently published at
      least two academic/scholarly books

      translations already supported by another funding source of the Soros
      Foundations/Open Society Institute network (for example, the CEU
      Translation Project or a publishing support program of a national
      Soros Foundation) are not eligible for these grants

      the grants do not cover 100% of translation and publication costs;
      publishers are expected to invest some of their own resources in the
      project, and to recoup their investment through book sales; the grant
      is intended to offset losses that the publication may incur

      publishers should report all other subsidies and grants for the
      publication, and the grant requested from OSI should reflect any such
      additional support

      once a grant application is approved, OSI will prepare a contract and
      mail it to the grantee; the contract requires the publisher to commit
      to the publication deadline and the minimum print run specified in
      the application

      the amount of the translator's fee, as stated by the publishers in
      their applications, will be included in the grant contract and the
      publishers will have to provide evidence that the translators have
      been paid accordingly

      for translations of contemporary texts which are under copyright
      protection, payment of the grant is contingent upon the publisher
      obtaining written permission for the translation from the copyright
      holder, and providing OSI with a copy of the contract or letter of
      permission (we request that all publishers adhere to a copyright
      protection term of at least 50 years after the author's death)

      grants are paid in two installments, 50% upon completion of the
      translation and provision of a copy of a copyright contract, and 50%
      upon the publication of the book and providing evidence that the
      translator has been paid according to the grant contract; OSI
      reserves the right to verify independently the accuracy of the
      translation and to withhold the grant if the translation is
      substandard

      grant payments are denominated in US dollars and are made directly to
      the publisher's bank account

      all applicants will be informed of the selection committee's decision
      by 15 October 2000.
