We have faculty and affiliated faculty in a number of UW graduate programs, including History, Political Science, Sociology, English, Classical and Near Eastern Studies, and German/Nordic/Slavic. The Department of History offers a graduate track in Jewish studies. Graduate students in these and other departments should consult their academic advisors and graduate coordinators about the possibility of focusing on Jewish studies within their respective programs.
Most of our scholarships, fellowships, and awards are available to graduate students. Our study and research awards provide funding for research projects, conference travel, and study abroad. The Laurence A. Weinstein Distinguished Graduate Fellowship supports exceptional graduate students working in the area of education and Jewish studies. In addition, the CJS-affiliated George L. Mosse Program in History offers a variety of fellowships, including an exchange program with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a fellowship in modern Jewish history.
Graduate students with an interest in Jewish studies have formed the Jewish Studies Graduate Student Association (JSGSA), with activities aimed at enhancing the intellectual community among Jewish studies scholars and those in related disciplines on the UW-Madison campus
