Grants for the study or practice of Christian Mysticism
The Elizabeth Ann Bogert Memorial Fund for the Study or Practice of Christian Mysticism, administered by Friends World Committee for Consultation, Section of the Americas, makes annual grants of up to $1000.
A variety of proposals relating to Christian mysticism are given consideration by the Grants Committee. Recently funded projects have included research into John of Fecamp with the goal of reevaluating mystical piety in the 11th Century; a study to develop greater understanding of the methods of centering prayer; writing a new English edition of early Franciscan mystics for the series “Classics of Western Spirituality”; development of a series of workshops on the practice of Christian mysticism.
Individuals wishing to apply for grants in 2013 should submit a copy of their proposal no later than March 1, 2013 to Miriam Feyerherm, 182 Medford Leas, Medford, NJ 08055. Two or three individuals who know the applicant and are familiar with his or her work should be asked to send letters of reference by this deadline as well. Recipients are asked to make a progress report within a year.
