The Foundation offers grants to support teaching in Jewish Studies throughout Europe. We are not currently accepting applications from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. We especially welcome applications for the provision of Jewish language instruction (Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, etc.,) but will consider applications to support the teaching of other essential Jewish Studies subjects as well. Eligible institutions may apply for up to £40,000 per annum for a maximum of three years to expand their course offerings. Please note that local salaries and living costs will be used to determine the amount awarded for these Fellowships.
These teaching posts are intended to offer Jewish Studies students learning opportunities not previously available at their institutions. The skills they acquire through the newly offered classes (either language classes or otherwise) should enable further research within the field of Jewish Studies at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to send their referees the correct reference form (available for download under the referees section of the online application form or here) and to ensure that references are submitted by the referee deadline.
The application round is open and will close on the 15 March 2021.
