Research Consortia

Oxford Seminar in Advanced Jewish Studies on ‘Orthodoxy, Theological Debate and Contemporary Judaism'

Institutions can apply for funds to establish research consortia, which link scholars at multiple institutions working on shared research projects. The Foundation welcomes applications for research consortia which plan to use RFHE funds as seed money to develop a project for which they will then apply for major funding from national and/or EU funding bodies. The ability for Jewish Studies to win substantial grants from such funding bodies will ensure the future of Jewish Studies in 21st-century Europe.

Consortia must be composed of at least two and preferably more higher education or memory institutions. One of these partnering institutions may be located outside Europe (for instance, in Israel or North America), but the applying institution must be based in Europe, including both EU and European non-EU member countries, such as Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Gibraltar, Iceland, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.

Applicants to this category can apply for up to £30,000 per annum and funding can run for up to three years.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to send their referees the correct reference form (available for download under the referees section of their online application form or here) and to ensure that references are submitted by the referee deadline.

For more information about the application process and the Foundation’s funding priorities in this area you are welcome to view the notes of guidance and a sample of the application form.

The Application round is closed. Applicants from our recent Spring 2020 round will be notified in August 2020 on the outcome of your application.
