|Research Fellowship Program|
The society invites applications for the fellowships, a program designed to encourage faculty, independent researchers, and students to use and publish from the society's rich holdings. The program will award research and travel grants of $2500. Applicants must demonstrate a need to work in the society's collection for a minimum of one week and a maximum of one month. Applications are accepted from persons whose normal place of residence is farther away than a seventy-five mile radius of Philadelphia.
Projects in all fields of study, including history, American studies, women's studies, mission history, architecture, and ecumenism are invited. In accepting this support, Fellows are required to submit a report to the society within two months of their last visit. The society requests a copy of each final work for our holdings, and Fellows are encouraged to adapt their research for publication in the Journal of Presbyterian History.
Eligibility: These grants are open to scholars, students, and independent researchers.
Awards: The grants will be awarded as reimbursement for travel, lodging expenses, photocopying, and other research expenses.
Application procedures: Applications must be received at the Society by February 3, 2014 with awards announced by March 7, 2014.
