Elizabethtown College Endowment for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies

Endowment for a faculty chair, visiting fellows, and library acquisitions in a Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies.

Elizabethtown College requests a challenge grant of $500,000 from the NEH to endow a fund to support: 1) a Chair in Anabaptist and Pietist Studies; 2) a Visiting Fellows program; and 3) the acquisition of books and archival materials to support these programs. Based in the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist studies, the Chair will be dedicated to teaching and scholarship--dividing his/her time between teaching humanities courses (one-half) and research/writing (one-half). The endowed fund will benefit students of Elizabethtown College and national scholarship in Anabaptist and Pietist studies. The College will raise $2 million in matching funds (4:1) to create a total endowment of $2.5 million. Annual income of four percent from the endowment ($100,000) will support the chair's salary and benefits ($85,000), a Visiting Fellows program ($10,000), and the expansion of the humanities collection ($5,000). The Young Center is a nationally recognized research center with its own facilities on the campus of Elizabethtown College. The Center is the only research institute in the United States devoted to the scholarly study of Anabaptist and Pietist heritage.
