The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of U. S. Embassy in the Kyrgyz Republic is pleased to announce the call for proposals for the 2020 Book Translation Program.
PAS is soliciting proposals from publishing houses, academic institutions and non-governmental organizations registered in the Kyrgyz Republic
to publish books by American authors and/or books reflecting U. S. values, translated into the Kyrgyz language or jointly into Kyrgyz and English languages.
The program provides funding for the copyright acquisition (if required), translation, printing, and distribution of the title, along with follow-up programming.
The minimum print run is 3,000 copies.
Books will be distributed by the grantee, U. S. Embassy, and partners to educational institutions, public libraries and American Spaces throughout the Kyrgyz Republic.
PAS expects to fund three to four awards, pending the availability of funds, with an average award amount of $20,000 per title.
The Book Translation Program will fund awards on a competitive basis conducted by panel review.
