Karasik Scholarship for Study Abroad

Special Call for Proposals

Given the ongoing conditions of the pandemic, we are inviting students to apply for Summer 2021 funding to support participation in an international conference or enrollment in a virtual language course being offered from outside the U.S.

This scholarship is open to all graduate students in Jewish Studies and Holocaust, Genocide, Memory Studies who plan to conduct research, attend a conference, or enroll in a language study program hosted/sponsored by an institution outside of the United States. (Because the specific requirements of the Karasik Scholarship Fund, research, conferences, and language study in the U.S. will not be supported. The recipient may remain in the U.S., but you must be participating in a program or working with an international institution located outside of the country—i.e. an endeavor that would involve international travel but for the limitations of COVID restrictions.) Preference will be given to students who have not yet received a full award from PJCS/HGMS. The award offers up to three thousand dollars in support. In order to be considered please send a one-page description of your research project, language study plans, or a brief explanation of your conference presentation and the conference at which you will be presenting. You must also include a CV and a specific budget outlining the expenses involved in virtual participation (i.e. registration fees). All documents should be submitted to the Program Office. Please ask that one letter of recommendation be sent directly to Dara Goldman. For full consideration, all materials should be submitted by April 30, 2021.
