John Whitmer Historical Association awards scholarships to promising scholars. The purpose of the scholarship program is to encourage and support scholarly participation in JWHA’s central mission—studies of Community of Christ or other communities of the Restoration Movement.

JWHA offers scholarships to currently enrolled students. While preference may be given to undergraduates and first-time presenters, graduate students are encouraged to apply. Application deadline is the same as the proposal deadline for the annual conference proposals, April 6.

Scholarship amounts vary from year to year, depending upon available funding. Successful applicants must present their papers at the annual JWHA conference. In addition to a cash award, registration fees for the annual conference will be waived, and banquet tickets will be provided at no cost to awardees. In addition, an annual membership for the calendar year following the meeting will be given.

The application deadline is April 6. Submit your application to the scholarship committee chair at
