AJS@50 Fund

The Association for Jewish Studies is pleased to launch the AJS@50 Annual Fund, in recognition of our 50th anniversary in 2019. The AJS@50 Annual Fund recognizes the successes of our organization over the past five decades, and seeks to ensure excellence in the field for the next half-century.

As we look towards our fiftieth anniversary, the AJS invites contributions to the AJS@50 Annual Fund to help advance and expand our mission.

Your support of the AJS@50 Annual Fund will enable us to undertake several initiatives in 2019–20 including:

» An institutional survey of Jewish Studies programs and departments, focusing on funding sources, undergraduate and graduate training, and requirements

» Professional development webinars and programs focused on helping graduate students and recent PhDs secure careers inside and outside academia

» Podcasts of special conference sessions and member interviews, to bring the work of Jewish Studies scholars to wider audiences

» Enhancements to the AJS website, ensuring it serves as a cutting-edge medium for scholarly communication and outreach

The Association for Jewish Studies thanks all of those who contributed to the organization in 2018–19.
