Apply for the Annual Heritage Award

WHAT IS THE HERITAGE AWARD?

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.

WHAT KINDS OF PROJECTS CAN BE DONE?

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.
