We are pleased to announce two research grants (20,000 NIS each) for graduate students based at universities or similar institutions of higher education in Poland who are working on various aspects of the history and culture of Polish Jews.
These awards will enable graduate students (with a preference for PhD candidates) from Poland to spend one semester (three months) as visiting research students at Tel Aviv University. Fellows will enjoy access to university libraries and archives as well as other academic services, and will be required to attend a language course in Hebrew (‘Ulpan’). They will also be encouraged to consult with faculty from Tel Aviv University on their dissertation and to participate in periodic research seminars.
Fellows are expected to be in residence either during Autumn semester 2015 (starting October 18, 2015), or Spring semester 2016 (starting February 25, 2016).
Bursaries will be available to cover airfare.
It is the fellows’ responsibility to obtain accommodation and medical insurance.
