Lindsley and Masao Miyoshi Prizes & Grants

Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, the Keene Center will award the Lindsley and Masao Miyoshi Translation Prizes and Grants of varying amounts and divided between equally distinguished translations. These include: $6000 prize given to outstanding translations by non-citizens or non-permanent-residents of the United States; prizes for translations of particular scholarly merit or significance; grants to promising translations-in-progress; subventions for forthcoming publication of especially deserving translations; and, in rare cases, lifetime achievement awards for translators with particularly distinguished careers. The submission process for the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission Prizes and the Miyoshi Prizes and Grants is the same.
