Schusterman Doctoral Fellowships in Israel Studies
The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies is dedicated to promoting exemplary teaching and scholarship in Israeli history, politics, culture, and society at Brandeis University and beyond. To that end, the Schusterman Center supports and mentors graduate students at Brandeis University who focus on Israel Studies. These full and partial fellowships are granted on a competitive basis to doctoral candidates who have been accepted into the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
The Schusterman Center funds full and partial fellowships for doctoral students focusing on Israel Studies in fields such as history, sociology, politics, Middle East studies, Israeli art, literature and culture. These fellowships—granted through individual departments—will be renewable, after review, for up to five years. The Schusterman Scholar Fellowship includes a full tuition scholarship, health care benefits and a stipend of up to $25,000 stipend per year.
