The Chair of the Grants and Research Committee of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church, the Rev. Dr. Robert Tobin, invites applications for Grants to be awarded in 2019. Grants are made to help meet one of the Society’s objectives: promotion of the preservation of the particular heritage of the Episcopal Church and its antecedents. To be considered, applications must be submitted no later than May 1st. The awards will be announced July. Award recipients are expected to make an appropriate submission to the Society’s journal, Anglican and Episcopal History.
Applications for a general grant may come from individuals as well as academic and ecclesiastical groups. Requests are received that will support significant research, conferences, and publication relating to the history of the Episcopal Church as well as the Anglican church in the worldwide Anglican Communion. A typical request may include funding for travel to visit archives or other resources, dissertation research, or seed money or support for a larger project. Examples of past awards funded include support of documentary films, dissertation research, publication of books and articles, support for a history conference and other purposes. Awards funded are usually generally $500-$2,000, depending on the number of awards approved and amount of funds available.
