Achievement Awards

We offer two scholarship competitions each year – one in the fall, and one in spring. The spring competition has ended, but please check back soon for information about the fall competition.

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

  • We also offer the Lipton Essay Award, which is awarded for an essay of at least ten pages on a topic in Jewish Studies. For the application deadline and other details, please check this webpage later in the semester.

In addition, we offer awards supporting study and research in Jewish Studies. You may apply for multiple awards in both categories.
