HSEC Grants

The grant process for 2014 is closed. The next cycle will open in early 2015.

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 worldwide Anglican Communion, and Anglican and Episcopal churches in North America.

Grants are usually modest: $1,000-$2,000 generally. More or less may be awarded depending on number of awards and amount of funds available in any year. Typical grants include travel to collections or resources, dissertation research, and seed money for larger projects.

Applications must include:

  1. A statement of the subject and purpose of the project of no more than 500 words;
  2. A bibliography of the project, no more than a single page;
  3. A concise curriculum vitae;
  4. 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;
  5. 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);
  6. A sample of recent scholarly writing (an article, essay, or chapter of no more than ten pages).

Grant recipients are announced in July. It is expected recipients will make an appropriate submission to Anglican and Episcopal History.
