Foundation for Jewish Culture to Allocate Funds for Academic Year

The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture announced today that it expects to allocate funds for the academic year 1967-68, as it has in the past. The Foundation aids programs calling for the development of teacher training in Jewish subjects, rabbinical training, and assists in the establishment of Chairs in Judaica at colleges and universities, the publication of Jewish textbooks, and the development of Jewish educational programs for students at colleges and universities.

Allocations will also be granted in aid of research and publication programs in Jewish fields undertaken by universities and other scholarly institutions, with special attention given to the period of the Nazi holocaust. Aid will be granted too towards the translation and publication of works of major Jewish significance, and the publication of literature in Jewish fields for children and youth.

The Foundation also conducts scholarship and fellowship programs. It will grant scholarships to university students specializing in a Jewish field on a graduate level, and fellowships to persons qualified to carry out independent projects in Jewish scholarship, literature and the fine arts. Applications are to be submitted before the end of December 1966 to the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture here. The applications should contain detailed descriptions of the programs and projects for which funds are requested.
