The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church invites applications from individual scholars and academic and ecclesiastical groups for grants to support significant research, conferences, and publications relating to the history of the Church of England, the Anglican communion worldwide, and the Anglican and Episcopal churches in North America.
These grants are usually modest in amount: $1,000-$2,000 generally, though more or less may be awarded depending on the number of awards given and the amount of funds actually available in any particular year. Typical grants would include travel to collections or resources, dissertation research, and seed money for larger projects.
Applications must include:
- A statement of the subject and purpose of the project of no more than 500 words;
- A bibliography of the project, no more than a single page;
- A concise curriculum vitae;
- A projected total budget for the project and the specific amount requested (with a detailed statement of how it will be used). If this is less than the total budget, it must be made clear how a small grant would help and what other resources are available or being pursued;
- At least two letters of recommendation (in the case of a graduate student, we expect that one of those letters will be from the project's main supervising professor);
- A sample of recent scholarly writing (an article, essay, or chapter of no more than ten pages).
Applications must be submitted by 1 April. Preference is that application materials be sent by email in .pdf format to the Rev. Craig D. Townsend, Historical Society Grants and Research Committee, at: email@example.com.
Materials may be submitted to Mr. Townsend in hard copy if necessary at the following address: St. James' Church, 865 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10021
