The Ostad Fellowship in Jewish Studies
The Duke Center for Jewish Studies is delighted to announce the establishment of The Ostad Fellows in Jewish Studies, made possible by a generous gift from Michael and Alana Ostad, P’92.
Ostad Fellowships will be awarded for undergraduate research in Jewish Studies; and preference will be given to proposals that focus on Jewish-Muslim relations and/ or women in Sephardic Judaism. Other proposals in Jewish Studies will be considered depending on available funds.
Students will be required to submit:
- a one-page proposal of their project
- an estimated budget
- a letter of recommendation from the faculty member overseeing the project
Faculty nominations are also welcome.
All materials should be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Ostad Fellowship.”
Applications are currently being accepted for fall 2021; however, due to the ongoing pandemic, we cannot guarantee that funding will be available in fall. Successful applicants may be asked to postpone their proposed research until spring 2021, if necessary.
