AJS Scholars of Color Fellowship

The deadline to apply has passed.

The Scholars of Color Fellowship invites applications for its 2023 – 2024 academic year cohort. The mentorship program pairs scholars who have made or will make contributions to Jewish Studies scholarship with experienced mentors, while also building a community among the cohort. The program is focused on finding racialized scholars who are underrepresented in the academy and/or directly impacted by racialization due to their lived experience as a person of color. Mentorship, networking, and professional development sessions will take place on Zoom. An in-person workshop will also be held for fellows during the 55th Annual AJS Conference in San Francisco from December 17 – 29, 2023. The AJS will cover fellows’ transportation and lodging associated with the conference.

Application Deadline: March 31, 2023


You do NOT need to be part of a Jewish Studies program or department to apply, nor do you need to be an AJS member.
