Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $2,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals and institutions for programs, projects, and activities that promote increased understanding and awareness of Jewish history in the Southern United States. Special priority will be given to requests from individual researchers that are designed to creatively navigate current obstacles (for example, those which seek support for remotely accessing collections) and from institutions that are producing forms of public scholarship that can be accessed remotely by a wide audience.

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.
