2018 GRANT RECIPIENTS
The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church is pleased to announce its 2018 grant awards. Applications received were reviewed by a committee, with recipients determined by the Board of Directors at their meeting in June at Virginia Theological Seminary. $13,000 in grants were awarded. The Rev. Dr. Robert Tobin, Chair of the Grants Committee, announced recipients from the applications received. Grants support scholars in significant research and publications related to the history of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Recipients are encouraged to publish, when appropriate, in Anglican and Episcopal History, the quarterly academic journal of the Society.
Grant recipients announced in July.
If a request is granted, recipients need to return the 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.
