FAQs about Jewish Studies at the UW
A: Students are welcome to attend programs and events offered by the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies. These events, the majority of which are free, range from lectures to films to cultural performances. Subscribe to the Stroum Center newsletter to learn more about upcoming events.
Q. What study abroad opportunities are available for Jewish Studies students?
UW-approved study abroad programs–from Melbourne to Haifa to Prague to Grenada–offer courses transferable to the UW for Jewish Studies credit. Check with your adviser to confirm that specific courses will transfer.
Q: Is funding is available for Jewish Studies students?
Stroum Center opportunity grants offer up to $1500 to undergraduate students who participate in UW-approved study abroad programs with a focus on Jewish Studies or take intensive Jewish language courses domestically. Undergraduates do not need to be Jewish Studies majors or minors, and multiple grants are available. The grants are also available for graduate students conducting research in the field of Jewish Studies.
