Starting 2017, small research grants for research at the Moravian Archives will be available for the first time. The Rev. Vernon H. Nelson Fund was established in 2011 to provide grants to researchers toward their expenses related to their research at the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Funding may be given for research projects using records held by the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem. Projects will be assessed on the general significance of the proposed research, the scholarly value, the relevance to Moravian studies, and the likelihood of timely completion of the proposed research. The full selection criteria are available on our website. We welcome anyone to apply for a grant through our website by February 28, 2017.
