McAdams Adventist History Research Grants
All scholars of Adventist history will be pleased to learn of new research funding opportunity now available. Appropriately, this generous support for Adventist history research comes from one of the founders of ASDAH. Donald R. McAdams (Ph.D., Duke University), former professor of history at Andrews University, president of Southwestern Adventist University (1975-84), and successful education consultant, has over a long career maintained a lively interest in denominational history. (He was, of course, among the first scholars to examine Ellen White’s use of historical sources.) Now, assisted by a matching grant from Exxon, McAdams and his wife Anne have established the McAdams Adventist History Research Grants .
The intention of the grant program is to fund significant projects in Millerite/Adventist history that will result in publication. Scholars holding a Ph.D. in history (or related field) or who have demonstrated competence in the field of Adventist history are eligible to apply. Grants are not intended to aid research for completion of doctoral work, although funding may be available for scholars who are revising completed dissertations for publication. Grants will ordinarily be in the range of $3,000 to $10,000. Follow-up grants for large projects may be available.
Applicants should complete the application form, which asks for a short description of the project. If a project is judged to be promising, the committee will ask for a fuller statement (1,200-2,000 words), including a proposed budget. Application letters should be submitted to:
Department of History
Southwestern Adventist University
100 W. Hillcrest, Keene, TX, 76059.
There are two deadlines: April 1, 2017 and November 1, 2017.
A selection committee of veteran ASDAH members (Steve Jones, Terrie Aamodt, Eric Anderson, Ben McArthur) will review applications and make recommendations.
