Announcing the first annual schafer-friesen research fellowship.

The Schafer-Friesen fellowship is awarded annually by the Mennonite Historical Library (MHL) at Goshen College to support scholarship in Reformation and Anabaptist History.

First priority for the award is to individuals doing advanced research using the resources of the Mennonite Historical Library. The award will support travel costs to the Mennonite Historical Library, up to three weeks of room and board, and a small stipend.

The Fellowship may also be used, secondarily, to support publications on Reformation and Anabaptist topics.

To apply, please send a letter of interest, along with a one-page research plan and budget to John D. Roth, MHL, Goshen College, 1700 S. Main St., Goshen, IN 46526, by March 1, 2015.

The Schafer-Friesen Research Fellowship was established through a generous gift of Geraldine Schafer Friesen and Dr. Abraham Friesen.

This fellowship is established in honor of Laura Schafer Martens, aunt of Geraldine Schafer Friesen. Laura graduated with a BA in Home Economics from Goshen College in 1947 and taught Home Economics for much of her active career. From 1964 until her retirement in 1987, she was a beloved teacher at Shafter (CA) High School while serving in many civic, educational and church roles that supported the interests of children and young mothers. Laura and her husband, Frank Martens, were active members of the Mennonite Brethren Church in Shafter, CA.
