Graduate Fellowship

Finding Your Voice in Jewish Studies

The Stroum Center’s interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship program supports MA and PhD students from a wide variety of departments who have an interest in research topics related to Jewish Studies.

Graduate Fellows share their research in public presentations and contribute short articles to the Stroum Center’s e-journal. The fellowship includes monthly workshops exploring the history and methodologies of Jewish Studies; professional development in the areas of public scholarship and library skills; and networking with Jewish Studies faculty.

The fellowship offers grants of $3,000 to awardees, and is made possible by the Stroum Center’s generous community supporters. Applications for 2018-2019 will be accepted starting in February 2018.
