The Jewish Studies Program is pleased to announce the Jules Roos and Samuel Grunfeld Research Award Fund for Israel Studies. The purpose of this Award, which is made possible through the generosity of Aaron Nir and Daniel Nir of New York, is to support travel by UVa faculty and Ph.D. students in the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences to Israel to conduct research there for an extended and sustained period of time. The Award is designed with the intention to enable recipients to conduct research in Israel during the summer months between academic years, but it may be used during the academic year after which it is awarded, e.g. during a sabbatical or winter break. The amount of the Award is $5000. Applications for the Award, which will be granted for research commencing in the summer of 2017, are being accepted now. Go here for more information.
