Golberstein Jewish Studies Travel-Study Grant

Purpose

To aid Ithaca College students, with a preference for those minoring in Jewish Studies, to broaden their understanding of the history and survival of the Jewish people through formal study involving travel (either domestic or international). Rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors who have successfully completed at least two courses of the Jewish studies program may also be considered for this award. Students are encouraged to travel to communities that have important historic significance to the Jewish people and to places they have never been before.

Eligibility 

  • Rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors who have successfully completed at least two courses of the Jewish studies program (with a preference for, but not limited to, Jewish Studies minors)
  • Students who are planning to study or conduct research through the auspices of an approved academic institution
  • Students who are planning to return to Ithaca College for at least one more semester after their travel-study experience

Apply for the Golberstein Jewish Studies Travel-Study Grant by:

  • writing an essay describing the type of work you are planning to do;
  • naming the academic institution through which you are planning to study;
  • including a proposed budget for the study or research; and
  • adding any other relevant information about the program and your intentions.

Also discuss alternate and supplemental funding sources for this program.

To submit a grant application, or for more information, contact Dr. Rebecca Lesses, Coordinator of Jewish Studies, (607) 274-355.

If you are a recipient of the grant, you will have additional requirements following your travel experience.

  • You will be obligated to make a public presentation to the Ithaca College community about the impact of your travel-study.
  • You will also need to write a letter reporting your experiences to the Golberstein family and/or any other contributing funders.

Applications will be accepted throughout the academic year until the grant is awarded.
