The Program in Jewish Studies and the University of Colorado Libraries’ Rare and Distinctive Collections annually support a visiting scholar whose research interests take advantage of the unique resources in the Innovations in Jewish Life Collections. The Innovations in Jewish Life Collections provide access to materials examining Judaism and the Jewish experience as a religious re-engagement, social movement, and philosophy of spiritual transformation in America from the late 1940s to the present.
The fellow will have the opportunity to conduct research in any of the collections available in the Innovations in Jewish Life Collections. However, preference will be given to candidates whose research project explores collections related to the Jewish Renewal movement in America.
The award is $1,500 for a minimum 4-day residency.
The submission deadline for applications is rolling.
