Please check back in fall semester for updates on our grants program for 2020-2021.


NEW: The Center is launching a new grant cycle for UNC graduate students working on a Jewish Studies topic. All details and the application form are now online. Given our current situation and the cancellation of summer programs and conferences, we cannot award research and travel grants or the summer stipend grant based on the February 2020 application cycle. If you submitted an application in February for a project that did not require travel in spring/summer 2020, you can resubmit that same application. Otherwise, this is an opportunity for you to create a new application based on research and writing that you can and will do during the summer months. If you have questions, contact us at
