AJS Arts and Culture Community Grants

The Association for Jewish Studies is pleased to offer three matching grants of $5,000 (community sponsors would contribute $2,500 for a total of $7,500) to support public programming in 2020–2021. These grants will enable local communities to present projects that combine cultural programming with a scholarly component.
