Research Grants


An annual award of $1,500 supports scholarly research and publication in Anabaptist-Mennonite studies.. The intent of the grant is to assist in covering costs related to research, e.g., subsidy for writing time, travel, etc. The Mennonite Quarterly Review has the “right of first refusal” for scholarly articles that result from research funded by the grant.

To apply, send the following materials by March 1 to Leonard Gross, secretary, Mennonite Historical Society, Goshen College, Goshen, IN 46526: a 2-3 page summary of the project which includes an overview of the publication or research project stating its significance to the field of Anabaptist-Mennonite history; a budget of anticipated expenses (applicants for the Publication Assistance Grant should include relevant correspondence with a publisher and a projected timetable for publication); a vitae; and one letter of recommendation. All applicants must be members of the Mennonite Historical Society. Recipients of the award will be announced at the May meeting of the MHS Board of Directors. Disbursements will be made by June 1. The Prize Selection Committee may choose not to award the grants if none of the applications is deemed acceptable.
