Finding Your Voice in Jewish Studies
The Stroum Center’s interdisciplinary graduate fellowship program supports current M.A. and Ph.D. students from a wide variety of disciplines at the University of Washington whose research connects to Jewish studies.
Graduate fellows share their research through public presentations and articles published on the Stroum Center’s website. 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 faculty.
The fellowship offers grants of $4,000 to awardees and is made possible by the Stroum Center’s generous community supporters.
Applications for the 2022-2023 fellowship cohort will open again in spring 2022. Learn more >
