Scholarships & Awards

The deadline is Wednesday, October 25, at 5:00 p.m. (Central Time).

Through the generosity of our donors, the Mosse/Weinstein Center offers a number of scholarships, fellowships, and awards for UW–Madison students in Jewish studies. Funding opportunities fall into two categories:

Achievement awards to recognize excellence in scholarship

Awards to support study or research

The latter category includes the Laurence A. Weinstein Distinguished Graduate Fellowship and the Joint Scholarship in African American and Jewish Studies, both of which have their own application processes and deadlines.
