Scholarships & Awards

We are pleased to announce our fall competition for awards supporting study and research in Jewish Studies. The deadline is Friday, November 19, at 5:00 p.m. (Central Time).

  • To apply for a study or research award, please download the Study/Research Application Form and submit it to the Scholarship Committee at with the required documentation.
  • While the UW has no longer suspended all university-sponsored travel, travel remains restricted and may require approval by the University. When applying, please consider whether or not your travel will be allowed under the current travel restrictions and/or whether or not you will need to seek approval from the University. While you do not need to have pre-approval for travel before you apply for a scholarship, bear in mind that our funds cannot be used for travel that does not follow the current University guidelines.

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, which has its own application process and deadline.

To apply, click on the appropriate link(s) above.
