Achievement Awards

There are two scholarship competitions per year, one in the fall and the other in the spring.
Please check this site again in September for information about the fall competition.

We offer a number of achievement awards to recognize excellence in Jewish studies scholarship. Applications for these awards will be invited in our Spring scholarship competition.

To apply for an achievement award, please download the Achievement Application Form and submit it to the Scholarship Committee at with the required documentation.

If you are a graduate student whose work concerns the role that education has played in Jewish civilization and/or questions pertaining to education in Jewish studies, please also consider applying for our Laurence A. Weinstein Distinguished Graduate Fellowship.
