The Chicago Center for Jewish Studies at the University of Chicago is pleased to announce its winter competition for graduate research and travel grants in Jewish Studies
Eligibility: University of Chicago Ph.D. students in all Divisions and Schools are eligible to apply.
Scope: The Chicago Center for Jewish Studies will award travel grants to students whose research in any area of Jewish Studies requires travel, to present papers on any topic in Jewish Studies at conferences, and to participate in foreign language programs related to their graduate work in Jewish Studies. Because funds are currently limited, students may combine their awards with funding from other sources.

The application materials include:
1. CCJS Cover Sheet
2. Project proposal (no longer than two pages).
3. Rough Budget covering the entire trip, including the total amount being requested.
4. Current CV.
5. E-mail from the student’s departmental Chair of Graduate Studies stating that the student is in good standing
Award: Fellowship decisions will be made by March 12; normally, travel should begin within the three consecutive academic quarters (including summer) after the award has been made. The number of awards and the amount of each award will be based on the needs of the strongest applicants.
