Download PDF for this date

The ninth annual program of international scholarship and fellowship grants for the academic year 1962-63 will be offered by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Jacob Blaustein, senior vice-president, announced today.

The grants will be awarded to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution who qualify for scholarships in Jewish teacher training and in Jewish studies, and for fellowships to carry on independent research projects in the Jewish arts, letters and social sciences.

Last year, scholarship and fellowship grants went to 164 candidates in 18 countries: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Italy, Peru, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States and Yugoslavia.

Applications must be submitted on special forms which may be obtained from the offices of the Claims Conference in New York. Candidates in Europe may obtain the forms from the Central British Fund for Jewish Relief and Rehabilitation, London, or from the American Joint Distribution Committee, Geneva.

Scholarship and fellowship applications must be submitted to the Claims Conference, New York, no later than March 31, 1962. Applications submitted after that date will not be considered.

The scholarship and fellowship grants are part of a greater program for Jewish cultural and educational reconstruction carried on by the Conference.
