Stroum Center Opportunity Grants are separately offered in two cycles: grants for Winter/Spring experiences and grants for Summer/Autumn experiences.  The amount per grant is up to $1500. Multiple grants are available.

For undergraduate students, the primary goal of the Stroum Center Opportunity Grants is to support undergraduate experiences with Jewish Studies through UW-approved study abroad experiences. Accredited academic domestic opportunities will also be considered (e.g., Middlebury Language Schools). Students can also apply funding towards MODHEB 105: Intensive Elementary Modern Hebrew, taught at UW during the summer full-term.

For graduate students, Stroum Center Opportunity Grants are intended to help support research, conference attendance, and further study in topics related to Jewish Studies. This research and study can be done domestically or abroad.

The Stroum Center for Jewish Studies offers annual year-long internships for undergraduate students. Stroum Center Interns apply theory to real-life situations; receive mentoring and supervision from Jewish Studies professional staff; and gain exposure to the world of international studies. Interns of all backgrounds and disciplines are welcome. Students do not need to major or minor in Jewish Studies to apply for an internship.

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 receives grants of $3,000 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 the Jewish Studies Spring Research Symposium in Spring Quarter.  Learn more about the program and the current cohort of Graduate Fellows on the Graduate Fellows page. View the new Call for Applications for the 2017-2018 Jewish Studies Graduate Fellowship. All application materials are due April 3, 2017.

Please contact the Graduate Fellowship coordinator, Dana Rubin, with any questions related to the application process, eligibility, or requirements.
