Eight $1000 Jewish Studies Scholarships
The Jewish Studies Interdisciplinary Program is sponsoring eight need-based scholarships of $1000 for the 2016-2017 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) and who have achieved a GPA of 3.0 or higher. 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 2016 courses are already in Class Search and on the Academic Programs page on this website. Applications are available on STARS Online -- login and select the “2016-2017” academic year. The application deadline is May 2, 2016. In advance of filling out the application, ask two faculty to write you a short letter of recommendation. You can upload those letters or request from the STARS Online system to contact those faculty on your behalf.
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.
