Indiana University’s Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism (ISCA), in conjunction with the Robert A. and Sandra S. Jewish Studies Program, invites applications for Graduate Student Research Incentive Awards. The purpose of the awards is to support Indiana University graduate students on the Bloomington campus who wish to pursue focused research on some salient aspect of contemporary antisemitism. Typical grants will be in the range of $2,000-$2,500.
Students who receive such a grant will be expected to produce an article-length research paper of publishable quality. Recipients will present their written work in a special ISCA research workshop devoted to the study of contemporary antisemitism. Awardees will be expected to attend all sessions of this workshop, which will meet a few times per semester on a flexibly arranged schedule. The workshop coordinator will be Professor Alvin H. Rosenfeld, the Irving M. Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies and the Director of ISCA.
Research papers must be completed and ready for presentation at an agreed-upon time before the end of the 2012-13 academic year. The grants will be awarded upon the successful completion of these terms.
ISCA’s Graduate Student Research Incentive Awards are open to students in all of the recognized academic disciplines. Those who wish to apply are encouraged to submit a cover letter of not more than 1,000 words describing the nature and scholarly significance of the project, a detailed work plan, and also a budget of anticipated expenses. Two letters of recommendation from professors who are familiar with the student’s academic work should accompany the application.
Submission date: November 5, 2012.
