The Duke Funding Alert newsletter, published every Monday, provides information on all new and updated grants and fellowships added to the database during the prior week. This listserv is restricted to members of the Duke community.
For 2024, the SJHS will have approximately $7,500 available for grants, which typically range from $500 to $2,000. Please keep these limitations in mind when making your request. SJHS does not support indirect costs (“overhead”) for items such as salaries of existing employees, utilities, office space, etc., so please limit requests to items that are direct costs of the project. Funds are generally available after July of the grant year.
SJHS offers the following grants:
- The Project Completion Grant is intended to facilitate the completion of projects relevant to Southern Jewish history. Grants may not be used to fund research or travel, but are intended to cover production or completion expenses such as the editing or indexing of a publication, costs related to illustrations or photo permissions, the production of a media project, or the fabrication of exhibits.
- The Dr. Lawrence J. Kanter Grants assist scholars and independent researchers with travel and other expenses related to conducting research in Southern Jewish history. Graduate students completing doctoral dissertations are particularly encouraged to apply. A Kanter grant also is available for research into Florida Jewish history.
- The Scott and Donna Langston Archival Grant supports projects aiming to preserve archival materials related to Southern Jewish history, either in secure repositories or in digital format.
Deadline for all applications: March 15, 2024
