Jewish Claims Conference to Offer International Scholarships

The eleventh annual program of international scholarship and fellowship grants for the academic year 1964-65 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 social sciences, literature and arts.

Last year, scholarship and fellowship grants went to 139 candidates in 18 countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States, and Yugoslavia.

Applications for grants must be submitted on special forms which may be obtained from the offices of the Claims Conference here. 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. The academic year 1964-65 will be the final year for which the Conference will accept applications for scholarship and fellowship grants. These applications must be submitted to the Claims Conference no later than March 31, 1964.
