Graduate Student Recruitment Top-Up Grants
Spring 2021 applications for Academic Year 2021-2022
Application Deadline:  5:00 p.m. on January 21, 2021


Thanks to private support, the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies is offering two top-up stipends for graduate student recruitment for the 2021-2022 academic year. The Jewish Studies Top Up grant is a $7,000 stipend to enhance what departments can offer prospective graduate students, with half given each semester of the student’s first year. Departments may nominate prospective graduate students who have an academic and/or research interest related to the field of Jewish Studies. Departments may nominate up to two students for this award.

Nominations should consist of a single PDF including: a statement of support from the DGS for the student, including why the student’s academic history or research interest appeals to your department and why you want the student in your graduate program, as well as a statement of the level of financial support the department is prepared to offer the student. The student’s interest in a topic related to the field of Jewish Studies should be highlighted. In the case of departments nominating two students, a detailed ranking of the nominees should also be provided.

Please email nomination letters to:
