First-Time Author Fund

The First-Time Author Fund underwrites the promotion and production costs of one first book per year and provides an award directly to the author to aid their scholarship, professional development, or the promotion of the book.

To lend your support to these field-shaping (and hopefully career-launching) books, click the donate button below and enter “Notre Dame Press First-Time Author Fund” in the field labelled “Add a comment with your gift.”
