Application deadlines:  March 1 & April 1, 2016

Jewish Studies Opportunity Grants

The Stroum Center for Jewish Studies offers support for study abroad experiences and language courses connected to Jewish Studies. These Student Opportunity Grants are separately offered in two cycles: grants for Summer/Fall (due March 1, 2016) and grants for Winter/Spring (due October 14, 2016). Any undergraduate or graduate student planning to be enrolled at the University of Washington for the 2016-2017 academic year is eligible to apply. The amount per grant will be up to $1500. Multiple grants are available.

For graduate students, Jewish Studies 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.

Jewish Studies Graduate Fellowship Program

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 $3,000 grants to support research projects related to Jewish Studies. Application materials are due April 1, 2016.

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.
