Historical Commission funds 3 initiatives
The Historical Commission of the U.S. and Canadian Mennonite Brethren Churches announces three funded initiatives for 2014–2015.
The first is a PROJECT GRANT of up to $2,000 in support of a historical and/or theological project of interest to Mennonite Brethren around the world. This grant is new this year and the application deadline is Nov. 17, 2014.
The second is a SUMMER ARCHIVAL INTERNSHIP, 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 2015 (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. Application deadline is Feb. 2, 2015.
The third is a RESEARCH GRANT 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. Application deadline is Apr. 6, 2015.
Criteria and application details for these funded initiatives are available at www.mbhistory.org or on the ads attached.
