Grants & Awards
Submission Deadline May 1, 2019
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 and Prizes to be awarded in 2019. Grants and awards 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. Award recipients are expected to make an appropriate submission to the Society’s journal, Anglican and Episcopal History.
The Society is pleased to announce the inaugural Robert W. Prichard Prize. It’s purpose is to recognize the best Ph.D., Th.D., or D.Phil. dissertation which has considered the history of the Episcopal Church (including 17th and 18th century British colonies that became the United States) as well as the Anglican church in the worldwide Anglican Communion. The prize is named to honor the Rev. Dr. Robert W. Prichard, a longtime board member and president of the Society and a noted historian and author in the discipline.
Applicants are invited to submit a dissertation for consideration which was successfully defended between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2018. It may be submitted by the author or on the author’s behalf. The dissertation need not focus solely or even principally on the history of the Episcopal Church or Anglicanism. The selection committee welcomes dissertations which place that history in conjunction with other strands of church history, or even place it in dialogue with non-ecclesial themes of American history. The Episcopal or Anglican element of the work should be a constitutive, not peripheral, part of the dissertation. Submissions should be a full electronic version of the dissertation, complete with all scholarly apparatus. The recipient of the prize will be announced in July and receive $2000.

Grant and Award recipients must return a Grant Acceptance Form before funds are released. The form details requirements (including a W-9 or other documentation), attribution in any publication drawn upon the project supported, submission of a report of accomplishments, and gives permission for the Society to publish recipients' names and titles of research or projects. It is expected recipients will make submission to Anglican and Episcopal History, when appropriate. A 1099 will be provided at the end of the tax year as grants may be taxable. Consult with your tax advisor.
