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 disciplines who 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 are now open!
