Summer 2016 Archival Internship & Open Research Grant

The Historical Commission of the U.S. and Canadian Mennonite Brethren Churches announces one "Summer 2016 Archival Internship," designed to give a college or seminary student practical archival experience at each of the four MB archival institutions in North America. Spanning five weeks during May and June, the intern will spend a week at each of the MB archives (Winnipeg, Hillsboro, Fresno, and Abbotsford).

Each archival site will host the intern, providing orientation to the context and collection, and involve the intern in its ongoing projects. Airline travel and accommodations will be provided by the Historical Commission. The Internship comes with a stipend of $2,000. Application deadline is February 1, 2016.

The Historical Commission also announces an "Open Research Grant" of $2,000 to promote research, creative productions, and publication on the history and contributions of MB women around the world. The Grant is made possible by generous support from the Katie Funk Wiebe Fund. Projects may include books, articles, lecture series, symposia, and multimedia presentations. Application deadline is April 4, 2016.

Apply for the Internship or Grant to Jon Isaak (jonisaak@mbchurches.ca), Executive Secretary, Historical Commission, 1310 Taylor Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3M 3Z6.
