Scholarships & Awards

We have two scholarship competition periods each year – one in the fall and the other in spring.

The spring competition is now closed. Please check back in the fall for information about our next competition.

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.

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

Please note that receiving an award may affect your financial aid package. To learn more, contact the UW-Madison Office of Financial Aid at
