Brandeis University Scholarship Overview
The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute is providing HBI LGBTQ Jewish Research Awards to support research or artistic projects in Jewish women’s and gender studies across a range of disciplines.
Awards are made to graduate students, early career, and established researchers for the academic year 2022-2023.
The purpose of the Brandeis University International Scholarship is to support work that has the potential to make a significant contribution to the field of Jewish Gender Studies.
The genesis of HBI can be traced to a 1995 report of the Hadassah-sponsored National Commission on American Jewish Women, chaired by Brandeis sociologist Shulamit Reinharz.
