pdf Application for Jewish Studies awards

pdf Application for Study in Israel awards (open to all students)

To be eligible for an award, you must be a sophomore, junior, or senior with a declared major or minor in Jewish Studies. Preference is given to students who have a sustained record of achievement in Jewish Studies. Students must apply to be considered for these monetary awards offered once per year. All awards are based on academic merit. Prior recipients may reapply. Graduate students enrolled in the Jewish Studies M.A. program or graduate students enrolled in other programs doing research on a topic in Jewish Studies are also eligible for consideration.

Each year, through the generosity of private donors, the Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life and the Department of Jewish Studies jointly distribute awards to full-time students for study in Israel at an accredited Israeli university. Students need not be a Jewish Studies major or minor to apply.

2017 Year End Program

On May 2, 2017, over sixty faculty, students, family and friends, came together in the new Tanzman Hall of Jewish Learning to honor accomplishments in the field of Jewish studies and also to pay tribute to highly respected Hebrew Language coordinator and instructor Orly Moshenberg who retired at the end of the term after 27 years at Rutgers.

The Bildner Center and the Department of Jewish Studies presented awards to five students in recognition of their academic achievements in the field of Jewish studies. An award was also presented to a Rutgers student who will participate in DanceJerusalem in Israel in fall 2017. Graduating seniors in Jewish studies and two Master’s Degree students were recognized at the event.
