See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The second annual program of scholarship and fellowship awards by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany was announced today by its president, Dr. Nahum Goldmann.

Scholarship grants will be made to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution who are engaged in programs of Jewish study or research. Candidates may apply for training at Jewish Teachers’ Seminaries, for studies at accredited graduate schools, and for independent research and writing in the fields of Jewish arts, letters or social science.

Last year 152 successful candidates in the United States, Great Britain, France, Holland, Italy and Switzerland received Conference awards. Applications for 1955 must be prepared on special forms which may be obtained from the offices of the Claims Conference in New York City. European candidates may obtain the necessary forms from the Central British Fund in London or the American Joint Distribution Committee in Paris.

All applications must be submitted to the Claims Conference by April 15, 1955. The scholarship program is part of a larger program for Jewish cultural and educational reconstruction on behalf of which the Conference granted a general allocation for 1955 of $1,300,000.
