Jewish Studies Course Development Grants

The Jewish Studies Program is pleased to announce the availability of course development funds for creating new courses or significantly revamping existing courses that have Jewish Studies content. Preference will be given to courses that can count toward the Jewish Studies certificate.

Grants up to $10,000 are available and can be used for library research, library acquisitions, travel, student assistance, and other expenses related to the development of new courses or major revamping of existing courses. In addition, the funds may be used for guest speakers or other co-curricular endeavors during the first offering of the new or revised course. Under limited circumstances, funds may be available to departments to replace teaching of the faculty member the first time the course is offered. (Those wishing to apply for funds for this purpose must be in discussion with the director of Jewish Studies and the appropriate Dean in their school well in advance of any application.)
