The Heritage Award is a research grant for students to use and to contribute to the Center for Catholic Women's History at the College of Saint Elizabeth. Ordinarily the grant is given to current and previous students of CSE. However, other applicants are also welcome.
The Award is $1,000 and is disbursed in two payments. The goal of the Award is to encourage students to learn more about the lives of Catholic women.
The application process is competitive. Current students at the College are encouraged to fill out their applications with the help of a faculty member.
The application deadline is Saturday, March 1, 2014. The winning project will be announced on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. The project must be completed by Wednesday, April 1, 2015.
Applications are reviewed by the Advisory Committee for the Center for Catholic Women's History. The grant recipient will be announced in April, and she will have a year to work on her project.
The recipient of the Award must present a completed project at a Heritage Celebration, an event that takes place each April.
All projects that help us learn more about the lives of Catholic women in New Jersey are encouraged. Applicants may want to write a paper, create a video, prepare an article for publication, or develop an educational program.
The Committee urges applicants to think broadly and creatively. Successful applications, however, will show how a selected project uses appropriate research and resources.
