Grants totaling $6,000 were awarded here today to Dr. Erich Rosenthal, associate professor of sociology and anthropology at Queens College, for a scholarly study that will explore the patterns of Jewish settlement in the United States, Jewish membership in American voluntary communal organizations, occupations and intermarriage.

Of the total, $5,000 was in the form of the first fellowship of the National Council of Jewish Women, according to Mrs. Charles Hymes, national president of the NCJW, and Mrs. Leonard Weiner, vice-president. An additional $1,000 was granted by the National Foundation for Jewish Culture, headed by Edwin Wolf, 2nd.
