McElrath-Eskew Research Fund

Article excerpt

The McElrath-Eskew Research Fund was created to provide modest grants to support the work of researchers of congregational song. These grants are open to both beginning and experienced researchers. The fund is named in honor of Harry Eskew and Hugh T. McElrath, two Fellows of The Hymn Society noted for their contributions in the area of hymnological research.

The Fund awards research grants of up to $500. Grants can be used to help fund travel to a distant library, provide money for a research assistant, or any number of other research-related activities.

New gifts will help to increase both the number and the size of grants that we can award in the future. If you'd like to contribute to the McElrath-Eskew Research Fund, please contact The Hymn Society office.

* a statement of the overall goal of the research,

* a statement of any prior Hymn Society grants or scholarships received by the applicant,

* a copy of the applicant's current CV,

* an example of previous writing or research in the field of hymnology, and

* at least one letter of reference to support the request. …
