Call for Proposals Extended
March 20, 2019
The call for proposals for three Reformed Church Center fellowships for the 2019-2020 academic year has been extended. The Center will continue to receive proposals for research in Reformed Church history, Reformed worship, and Reformed Church women’s studies through Monday, April 22. Anyone interested should go to https://www.nbts.edu/student-life/reformed-church-center/research-and-scholarship/ for information and applications or contact James Brumm, Reformed Church Center director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All three fellowships are made available by New Brunswick Theological Seminary to people who are working on projects and could benefit from an intense time of research in the New York metropolitan area. Fellowship recipients get access to the resources of the Seminary as well as the Archives of the Reformed Church in America, as well as the use of an apartment in New Brunswick for up to two weeks if needed. In addition to professional scholars, all three fellowships have been won by pastors and others with interests in history, worship, or the role of women in the church. The selection committee looks for applications that show careful planning; a good grasp of the project’s purpose, scope, and significance. Preference will be given to applicants who have already begun research in a project and will thus able to share preliminary results in their presentation.
“This is a unique opportunity for people with strong interests or a project they have always wanted to undertake to spend some time getting at least a piece of it up and running,” said Brumm. “This is especially true for the Poppen-Young fellowship in Reformed worship, which doesn’t have to be limited to the RCA, and where the Seminary’s resources include the multicultural mosaic of worship in the New York metropolitan area.”
