Eight $1000 Jewish Studies Scholarships
The Jewish Studies Interdisciplinary Program is sponsoring eight need-based scholarships of $1000 for the 2015-2016 academic year. All CSUN students are eligible who have taken or are currently enrolled in a Jewish Studies course - you do not need to be a JS Major or Minor. Applicants must agree to enroll in an additional Jewish Studies course in the year they receive the scholarship (fall or spring). Jewish Studies courses are offered through a number of departments, and Fall 2015 courses are already posted. Applications will be available on STARS Online and the application deadline will be Tuesday, December 14, 2015. In advance of filling out the application, ask two faculty members if they would agree to write you a short letter of recommendation, and the STARS Online system will send them the request.
The application asks you to write about yourself. Make sure you include why you are interested in enrolling in an additional Jewish Studies course.

Jewish Studies Achievement Awards
The Jewish Studies Minor Award ($350) and the Modern Jewish Studies Major Award ($500) are given yearly to the senior Jewish Studies Minor/Major with the highest academic achievement overall and in the Program. The winner should either have completed the degree or be making good progress towards completion. An award committee consisting of the JS instructors will be asked to judge between eligible students.
