Three funded initiatives for 2015–2016 promote the study and contribution of Mennonite Brethren
The Historical Commission of the U.S. and Canadian Mennonite Brethren Churches announces three funded initiatives for 2015–2016.
The first is a Project Grant [see right] of up to $2,500 in support of a historical and/or theological project of interest to Mennonite Brethren around the world. The application deadline is Nov. 16, 2015.
The second is a Summer Archival Internship [see left], designed to give a college or graduate student practical archival experience at each of the four Mennonite Brethren archival institutions in North America. Spanning five weeks during May and June 2016 (exact dates to be determined), the intern will spend a week at each of the MB archives (Winnipeg, Hillsboro, Fresno, and Abbotsford). Airfare and accommodations are included along with a $2,000 stipend.
The third is a Research Grant [see right] of $2,000 in support of research and publication relating to the history and contribution of Mennonite Brethren women. The grant is made possible by generous support from the Katie Funk Wiebe Fund.
News about past recipients of these initiatives is available at www.mbhistory.org.
Please circulate this news among friends and colleagues, and encourage interested people to apply.
