Subvention Grant for First Book in Jewish Studies

“The Foundation for Jewish Culture is pleased to announce its new subvention grant for the publication of outstanding first book in Jewish studies. The Sidney and Hadassah Musher Subvention Grant in Jewish Studies replaces the Sidney and Hadassah Musher Publication Prize, which since 1992 provided grant money toward the publication of a Ph.D. dissertation relating to Jewish life in Israel or America from 1880 to the present.

The Foundation awards a single $3,000 grant on a biannual basis to support the publication of an outstanding first book project by a recent Ph.D. (Applicants must have completed their Ph.D.s within 6 years of application.) The prize recognizes the originality, scope, and scholarly rigor of any first book published within approved categories related to Jewish studies (please see application for full details).”

And you will find that application, and the details, here. Note that all applications must be postmarked on or before Friday, September 26, 2008; materials hand delivered to the Foundation must be received by 4 PM on that day.
