Description

Prins Foundation Fellowships support research at the Center for Jewish History in a number of disciplines. The Center for Jewish History creates opportunities for scholars to immerse themselves in explorations of the primary source materials preserved within its walls.

For the past 11 years, the Center’s Fellowship Program has offered financial support to a diverse group of more than 60 humanities scholars at various stages of their careers and research projects. Support from the NEH and other funders has been critical in helping to build an interdisciplinary community of scholars who, through their work, will expand the reach of the partners’ rich collections and create new scholarship.
