The 18th World Congress of Jewish Studies and the EAJS WCJS Bursary Programme
Pre-Announcement (More details will follow when the application window opens in late October)
The 18th World Congress of Jewish Studies (WCJS) will take place at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on 8 – 12 August 2022.
We are happy to announce that the European Association for Jewish Studies (EAJS) intends to repeat a similar travel and accommodation bursary programme for its members as was run during the previous WCJS in 2017.
The EAJS WCJS travel bursary programme will make twenty £400.00 travel and accommodation bursaries available to fully paid-up members and student members of the EAJS to allow them to attend the WCJS to present a paper.
Academic excellence will be the key criterion. Applicants based at universities and institutions in European regions with a less developed academic infrastructure will take precedence in case of applications of comparable academic quality. Applicants will need to confirm that they do not already have sufficient institutional support to cover the expenses of attending the WCJS.
During the Congress, the WUJS and the EAJS will host a reception for the successful applicants.
The application window for this bursary programme will open in late-October and stay open until early-January (exact date to be confirmed). Further details will be provided when the application window opens.
Please keep an eye on the EAJS website and newsflash for the formal call for applications and online application form for this bursary programme.
