R. J. Jippe Hiemstra Annual Conference Travel Fund

In memory of our late president, the New Netherland Institute has established the R.J.Jippe Hiemstra Annual Conference Travel Fund to support the travel of a select group of students to our annual conference each fall. Jippe believed strongly in the importance of NNI's engagement with the next generation of New Netherland scholars. Donations to the fund established in his name will help those scholars engage with the latest scholarship on New Netherland and make lasting connections with others in the field of New Netherland studies. Please consider a donation today to remember Jippe and support the future of New Netherland scholarship.
