Every year, Jewish Studies awards five or more scholarships of between $500 and $1,000, and sometimes more.
Please email a copy of your transcript, a short statement of your goals and need for the scholarship, and, if applying for the Mervis Scholarship, a faculty recommendation to Associate Dean Linda Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org by that date.
Winners will be determined by the Jewish Studies B.A. Committee.
The application deadline for all scholarships is February 1st.
