The Gallatin Jewish Studies Grant was created to provide funding to expand academic and artistic exploration in the field of Jewish Studies through the support of research and other intellectual projects, including but not limited to the following:
In keeping with Gallatin’s educational philosophy, these projects should transcend traditional and professional boundaries. The size of the grants will be modest and will range from $500-$1,500. Awards are made on a reimbursement basis; students who have been approved for funding must submit proof of expenditures and request reimbursement.
Please note that the fund is not able to support tuition for courses. In addition, this year, given the COVID-19 pandemic, travel is permitted, but there are specific guidelines and requirements. See the COVID page on travel policy. Scroll down to section on the Travel Policy for 2021-2022. Certain international travel requires authorization; travelers must submit proof of vaccination for reimbursement.
Grants from the Jewish studies fund will be open to full-time or part-time members of the Gallatin faculty as well as to matriculated Gallatin undergraduate and graduate students.
The grant work should be completed in the semester following the awarding of the grant.
