The Association for Jewish Studies remains committed to supporting wide participation in its Annual Conference. In particular, the AJS seeks to support untenured faculty, graduate students, independent scholars without full-time employment, and international scholars who receive little to no institutional support for conference travel. All accepted presenters (speakers, respondents, or Chairs) are eligible to apply.
The AJS thanks the following for their support in funding conference travel grants:
The AJS Women’s Caucus
Maurice Amado Foundation
American Society for Jewish Music
Michael H. Baker Family Foundation
Charles Knapp Family Foundation
Rice University Program in Jewish Studies
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
Although the priority deadline is August 12, 2022 you are encouraged to apply early, as funds will be disbursed on a first come, first served basis. The combined application for travel grants, childcare grants, and the AJS Women’s Caucus grants is available here.

The AJS will be offering subsidies up to $500 to cover the costs of childcare for presenting participants at the 54th Annual Conference. This funding can be used to engage childcare services in Boston, to pay for additional childcare at home while you are at the conference, or for travel expenses to help bring a spouse or other care provider with you to the conference to take care of your child/children. Please note that funding is limited and is not guaranteed. The application process will open in August and decisions will be made before the end of the early-bird registration deadline. The combined application for travel grants, childcare grants, and the AJS Women’s Caucus grants is available here.
