The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture announced today that applications for scholarships and fellowships under the foundation’s fourth annual program must be submitted before the end of December. The foundation makes scholarship grants to university students specializing in a Jewish field on the doctoral level and offers fellowships to persons qualified to carry out independent projects in Jewish scholarship, literature and the fine arts.
Last year, the foundation awarded 39 scholarship grants and 59 fellowship grants to scholars and writers for independent projects. Of the total, 35 were granted in the United States and 34 in Israel, with the remainder distributed over 14 other countries.
