AJS- Berman Foundation Early Career Fellowship

The Association for Jewish Studies is pleased to announce the call for submissions for the inaugural Berman Foundation Early Career Fellowships in Support of Research in the Social Scientific Study of the Contemporary American Jewish Community.

The Berman Early Career Fellowships aim to support the development and expansion of the field of the social scientific study of the North American Jewish community; enhance funding opportunities for early career scholars in the social sciences; encourage scholars in economics, sociology, social psychology, social anthropology, demography, social work, and political science to expand their research to include study of the North American Jewish community; and nurture a new generation of scholars in this critical area of research

The Berman Foundation Early Career Fellowships – awards of up to $16,000 for the 2014-2015 academic year – will help offset scholars’ expenses in turning their dissertations into monographs or refereed journal articles. The fellowship may fund research travel, equipment and materials, and fieldwork, or help subsidize living expenses during the writing phase of the project. In so doing, the fellowships will enable recent PhDs to make significant contributions to the field at an early point in their academic career, and help position recipients to secure a tenure-track position or achieve tenure.

Applicants must have deposited their dissertations no earlier than January 2011 and no later than August 2014.

Support for this project is generously provided by the Mandell L. and Madeleine H. Berman Foundation.

Application Deadline: Friday, March 21st, 2014

Further information, including application instructions, can be found on the AJS website: http://www.ajsnet.org/bermanec.htm

Please contact Ethan Zadoff, AJS Grants and Communications Coordinator, at ezadoff @ ajs.cjh.org or 917.606.8249 if you have any questions regarding the application process or fellowship program.

Applicants must be Ph.D. candidates at accredited higher educational institutions who have completed their comprehensive exams and received approval for their dissertation proposals (ABD). Doctoral students from outside the field of Jewish Studies are encouraged to apply.

Support for this project is generously provided by the Mandell L. and Madeleine H. Berman Foundation.
