2023 Conference Travel & Childcare Grants


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, parents/guardians of children needing care during the conference, and international scholars who receive little to no institutional support for conference attendance. All accepted presenters (Speakers, Respondents, or Chairs) are eligible to apply.

The AJS thanks the following for their support in funding these grants:

The AJS Gender Justice Caucus
Anonymous Donors
Maurice Amado Foundation
American Society for Jewish Music
Michael H. Baker Family Foundation
Center for Jewish History
Charles Knapp Family Foundation
Taube Philanthropies
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research

The AJS also thanks Rice University Program in Jewish Studies for its support of the childcare grants.

Although the priority deadline is August 14, 2023 you are encouraged to apply early as funds will be disbursed on a first come, first served basis.
