Grants & Awards
Submission Deadline May 1, 2020
Grants and Research Committee Chair, the Rev. Dr. Robert Tobin, invites applications for grants to be awarded in 2020. Grants are awarded for the Society’s objectives, especially the promotion of the preservation of the particular heritage of the Episcopal Church and its antecedents. Recipients are expected to make an appropriate submission to the Society’s journal, Anglican and Episcopal History.
The Robert W. Prichard Prize recognizes 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 HSEC board member and president and noted historian and author in the discipline.
This prize will be next awarded in 2022. Applicants may submit a dissertation for consideration which was successfully defended between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2021. The process opens February 1, 2022. It may be submitted by the author or on their 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 2022 and receive a $2000 prize.

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 adviser.
The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church awarded grants to 11 recipients in 2019 to 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. Applications received were reviewed by a committee, with recipients determined by the Board of Directors at their meeting in June at Trinity College, Toronto. $13,000 in grants were awarded. The Rev. Dr. Robert Tobin, Chair of the Grants Committee, announced recipients from applications received.
