Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Institute of Jewish Studies at the University of Antwerp announce a summer program for graduate students in Jewish studies.
Graduate students at any institution worldwide, in any subfield of Jewish studies, past or present, are eligible to apply. This is an in-person experience, and participation is contingent on a student being able to travel safely to Israel within public health requirements in place at the time. The program will take place the week before the World Congress of Jewish Studies, and participants are encouraged to plan to stay in Jerusalem for the Congress as well.
Fellowships are available for students accepted into the program who do not have applicable funding from their home institutions.
