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 Stroum Center 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 2020-2021 academic year are due on April 13, 2020. Learn more & apply >

But were they really weirder than our worries today?
