Update on the Leve Center’s 2021-2022 Scholarships

 

The UCLA Alan D. Leve Center is now accepting applications for our Spring-Summer 2020-2021 AY cycle. For additional questions about our scholarships, email levecenter@humnet.ucla.edu

 

We invite graduate students to submit one single application for research, language study, and conference support related to their research using the link below. In recognition of the current limitations due to Covid-19 and UCLA policies regarding travel restrictions, the Leve Center is expanding support to include general summer support. Awards of up to $2,500 will be made from one of our Graduate Student Support funds (Amado, Appel, Roter, Leve, Zinn and Perlmutter) to UCLA students who are enrolled and in good standing Spring Quarter 2021.  These awards can be used for research, conference travel, necessary equipment, conference registration, and living expenses to defray costs for graduate students associated with research or study in the field of Jewish Studies including Jewish history, Holocaust studies, archaeology, and Sephardic studies. Graduate students are asked to submit one application – including project description, general budget, names and contact information for 2 recommenders (UCLA faculty), disclosure of other sources of support, and home department contact information – by April 16, 2021 using the link below.
