Foundation Organized by Claims Conference Offers First Scholarships

Download PDF for this date

The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, which was organized last year by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, announced today its first annual program of scholarship and fellowship grants for the academic year 1965-66.

Scholarship grants will be awarded, on a selective basis, to graduate students engaged in the preparation of doctoral dissertations in a field of Jewish studies. Fellowship grants will be offered to persons involved in independent research in Jewish scholarship, literature, and the arts. Only candidates with a record of achievement in their chosen field will be eligible for consideration.

Applications for grants must be submitted to the Foundation by April 15, and will not be accepted after that date. They must be filed on special forms which may be obtained from the Foundation offices at 3 East 54th St., New York.
