The College of Saint Elizabeth's Center for Catholic Women's History hosted its 2017 Heritage Award luncheon in the Annunciation Center's Flex classrooms in late April. This year's recipient, Maria Capozzoli, '18, a communication and English double major, presented her research on Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, who founded the Sisters of Charity in the United States.
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.
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.
