The Lutheran Historical Conference continues to award mini-grants to support projects and activities that promote the study, documentation, and preservation of the history and record of Lutheranism in North America. Mini-grants will be awarded on an annual basis for up to $1,000. Preference may be given to those who have not previously received a mini-grant award and only members of the LHC are eligible to apply. The grant process is competitive and the LHC board will determine the number of awards each year based upon the quality of the applications.
Completed applications must include a cover page (below); a project description (one page); a statement of significance and likely impact of project relative to Lutheran identity (one page); and a detailed budget. All application materials should be submitted electronically to LHC Secretary Joel Thoreson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due by 15 February 2019 and will not be considered beyond that date. All applicants will receive notification of award decisions by April 2019.
Those receiving mini-grants are expected to submit a formal written report summarizing progress and outcome of project one year after the award is granted. Any funds not used within two years of award shall be returned to the LHC.
