Israel Studies Faculty Summer Research Stipend

Faculty affiliated with the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies at UT Austin may apply for the Summer Research Stipend in Israel Studies (SRSIS) to support original research with a goal to publication in any discipline related to Israel Studies. There is no limit on the number of SRSIS’s a faculty member may receive; a previous award, however, may reduce your chances of receiving another.

Deadline: April 1, 2021
Stipend: $5000 - $10000
Application Requirements:
- Applicants must be full-time UT faculty—tenure and tenure-track faculty, as well as non-TT faculty who conduct research—and must be affiliates of the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies.
- 4-page Curriculum Vitae highlighting research/publications
- Project proposal that is no longer than three single-spaced pages. This project proposal should include a title and outline the project rationale and significance, research questions, and a research plan specifying the methods and methodology. The proposal should also note the short-term (peer-reviewed articles, chapters) and long-term goals of the proposed project. Please note: If the project includes human subjects, IRB approval must be received before funds are released.

Successful applicants will be required to submit a 1-page brief report detailing research activities to Israel Studies | Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies within one month of completing the SRSIS. Successful applicants should acknowledge Israel Studies | Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies at UT in any publication resulting from the SRSIS support.
