The Speculative Literature Foundation is now accepting applications for the

2021 A.C. Bose Grant for South Asian Speculative Literature. Applications will be open through

January 31st, 2021.


The $1,000 A.C. Bose Grant for South Asian Speculative Literature, co-sponsored by the

SLF and DesiLit, is awarded to a South Asian or South Asian diaspora writer developing

speculative fiction. The grant is named in memory of Ashim Chandra Bose, a lover of books,

especially science fiction and fantasy, and was founded by his children, Rupa Bose and Gautam

Bose. For more information about the A.C. Bose Grant, or to apply, click here.


Each grant is intended to support the SLF’s mission of promoting literary quality in speculative

fiction. Grants are awarded by a jury of SLF staff on the basis of merit. Additional information

about all of the SLF’s grants, including specific application guidelines, can be found at

speculativeliterature.org/grants. Grant applications are open to all: you do not need to be a

member of SLF to apply for or receive a grant.


Founded in January 2004 to promote literary quality in speculative fiction, the all-volunteer

Speculative Literature Foundation is led by Mary Anne Mohanraj and 30 other committed

volunteers. The Foundation maintains a comprehensive website offering information for readers,

writers, editors and publishers of speculative fiction, develops book lists and outreach materials

for schools and libraries, and raises funds for redistribution to other organizations in the field, as

well as five awards made annually to writers. For more information, visit

speculativeliterature.org.


The SLF is a 501(c)3 non-profit, entirely supported by community donations. If you'd like to be

involved with our efforts, please consider joining us as a member for $2/month, at

speculativeliterature.org/membership.


This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
