About the Fellowship

Manin Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellows in Jewish Studies, 2022–2023

The Jewish Studies Program at the University of Virginia coordinates the Rachel Winer Manin Interdisciplinary Gradaute Fellows of Jewish Studies. Graduate students from any UVA department working on any subject related to Jewish history, culture, thought, practice, or tradition may self-nominate or be nominated by their advisors to become Graduate Fellows of the Jewish Studies Program. Fellows are invited to be part of the intellectual community of the Jewish Studies Program and convene periodically as a cohort for informal gatherings and research workshop presentations. The fellowship, which is renewable, will carry a stipend of $500 to be used for books or other related research expenses.

Students may self-nominate, or their advisors may nominate them. For more information about the nomination process, please contact the Manin Fellowship Coordinator, Professor Asher Biemann at ab5j@virginia.edu or Jewish Studies Director Professor James Loeffler at jbl62@virginia.edu.
