Doctoral Fellowships for Academic Jewish Studies

Doctoral Fellowships for Academic Jewish Studies

Support is available for doctoral fellowships in any area in the broad field of Jewish Studies. Applicants must aim to produce an original piece of scholarship that will advance the field.

Level and Duration of Support

Individual students entering their first year of doctoral study can apply for grants of up to £19,000 per year for up to three years to prepare and complete their doctoral dissertation in Jewish Studies at an academic institution in Europe.

Students in later years of a doctoral programme may also apply, but their proposed period of funding will be expected to be shorter. The amount awarded may vary according to the local costs of living, tuition fees and individual needs.

The Foundation does not provide additional funding, on top of the original amount awarded, for research, travel, etc. To be covered, these expenses must be included in your original application budget.

Doctoral fellows are encouraged to gain teaching experience during the period of their fellowship, provided this is a possibility at their institution. Fellows are also encouraged to present their research to the local Jewish community as well as to the wider public.

Eligibility Criteria

Applications for doctoral fellowships must be submitted by PhD students (or prospective students) themselves. Those not yet accepted to their PhD programme of choice will need to indicate where they intend to study and when they expect to hear if they have been accepted. Their prospective supervisor must also submit a letter of reference.

To be eligible to apply for a fellowship, individual applicants must be European citizens (citizens of both EU and non-EU European countries are eligible). Likewise, the institution where applicants
propose to undertake their doctoral degree must be based in Europe. We are not currently accepting applications to study in Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate having been resident in Europe for at least 2 years prior to their award coming into effect. If your application is approved, you will be required to provide evidence of residency in Europe since August 2022. The Foundation will provide a list of the types of credible documentation accepted.

Eligible Topics

All topics within the broad field of Jewish Studies are considered eligible for the Foundation’s Jewish Studies grants. The Foundation particularly welcomes applications from those engaged in the study of contemporary Jewish life in Europe from a social science perspective and those whose proposals involve digital humanities research techniques.

In principle, projects only tangentially related to Jewish Studies are unlikely to be successful, nor will projects devoted to an individual or individuals who happen to be Jewish, but whose historical importance is not significantly contingent on that biographical fact. Secondary school education, informal education and documentary films will not be funded within the context of the Academic Jewish Studies grant programme.
