Jewish Studies Graduate Fellowship Program

The Stroum Center for Jewish Studies launched a new Graduate Fellowship program in 2012. Thanks to the generosity of community supporters, every year a cohort of outstanding graduate students will receive $3,000 grants to support research projects related to Jewish Studies.

The goal of the Jewish Studies Graduate Fellowship is to build an intellectual community around Jewish Studies. Fellows participate in a workshop series to foster professional development and advance their research agendas. All awardees present their work at a Spring Research Symposium in Spring Quarter.  Click here to learn more about last year’s fellows.
