ALTA Travel Fellowships

Submission Guidelines | Current Conference

Each year, approximately four to six $1,000 fellowships are awarded to beginning (unpublished or minimally published) translators to help them pay for hotel and travel expenses to the ALTA annual conference.

At the conference, ALTA Fellows give readings of their translated work at a keynote event, thus providing them with an opportunity to present their translations to a large audience of translators as well as authors and publishers from around the world.

Equally important, they have extensive opportunities to meet established translators and find mentors.

ALTA Travel Fellowships are funded by private donations, often generously given by established translators. If you are interested in learning more about how you can support this important program, please visit our Giving page.

For more information, please contact Maria Suarez at or to apply read the submission guidelines.
