The Susan Sontag Foundation has just announced a $5,000 grant to be awarded to a proposed work of literary translation from Portuguese into English.
This opportunity is open to anyone under the age of 30 and applicants will propose his or her own translation project. The project should be manageable for a five-month period of work, as the grant will be awarded in June 2012, and the translation must be completed by October 2012. Previously translated works will be considered, however applicants should include an explanation for why they are proposing a new translation. Applicants wishing to translate significantly longer works should contact the Foundation before sending in their applications so that supplementary materials can be included.
The deadline is March 9, 2012 and you can find more information here.
