Call for Applications to Miriam Usher Chrisman Travel Fellowship
Miriam Usher Chrisman Travel Fellowship
To honor a long-time member and past president of the Society for Reformation Research, the society offers the Miriam Usher Chrisman Travel Fellowship of $2000 every other year in odd-numbered years to doctoral students who need to travel abroad to do research for their dissertations. The award competition is open to all students of European studies, ca. 1450-1650, whose dissertations deal with religion or the Reformation in some significant way. All geographic and confessional concentrations are eligible, and students just beginning their archival research as well as those finishing are encouraged to apply. The purpose of the award is to help defray the expenses of working abroad.
Applicants should provide a 3-5 pp. (double-spaced) description of their research projects, together with an explanation of when and where they plan to use the fellowship. Applicants should keep in mind that just sending in a dissertation prospectus is insufficient, as the selection committee wants to know more specifically how the fellowship will be used and how the funds will help the applicants complete their dissertations. Applicants should also provide a curriculum vitae and ask their dissertation advisers to submit a letter of recommendation. All materials should be sent directly via email as attachments (in MS Word or as a pdf) to Kathryn Edwards , the Recording Officer of the society. She will then forward all materials to the Chrisman selection committee appointed by the current President of the society. All materials are due by Friday, March 1, 2013.
