Archival internship and research grant for 2014 announced
Winnipeg, Manitoba—The Historical Commission of the US and Canadian Mennonite Brethren Churches announces that it will again offer two funded initiatives for 2014.
The first is an “Open Research Grant” of $1,500 in support of research and publication relating to the history and contribution of Mennonite Brethren women. The Grant is made possible by generous support from the Katie Funk Wiebe Fund.
The second is a “Summer 2014 Archival Internship,” designed to give a college student practical archival experience at each of the four Mennonite Brethren archival institutions in North America. Spanning five weeks during May and June (exact dates to be determined), the intern will spend a week at each of the MB archives (Winnipeg, Hillsboro, Fresno, and Abbotsford). Airfare and accommodations are included along with a $2,000 stipend.
Criteria and application details for both of these funded initiatives are available at mbhistory.org.
