About the Fellowship

The Rachel Winer Manin Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship of Jewish Studies invites nominations for the upcoming year. Graduate students from any UVA department working on any subject related to the history, culture, thought, practice, or tradition of the Jewish people may be nominated, or ask to be nominated. Fellows will be invited to be part of the intellectual community of the Jewish Studies Program. They will be welcomed to all lectures and events and will be encouraged to present their research in monthly meetings. The fellowship, which is renewable, will carry a stipend of $500 to be used for books or other related research expenses. 

Advisors may nominate more than one Graduate Fellow from each department. For more information about the nomination process, please contact Asher Biemann, ab5j@virginia.edu, or James Loeffler, Director of the Jewish Studies Program, james.loeffler@virginia.edu
