Through a generous gift to Judaic Studies at William & Mary in 2014, Ruth Stern Hilborn ’28 established the Meyers Stern Endowment, the income from which provides scholarships to students to engage in study and research related to Judaic Studies anywhere in the world. Scholarships are provided for tuition, room and board, transportation and research costs and may be used for summer study, a semester, or full academic year. The amount of the scholarship varies, but generally a student may expect up to $4,000 for summer study, up to $6,000 for a semester, and up to $10,000 for a full academic year.
For the spring semester: Nov. 1
For summer and full academic year: March 1
Students should submit a letter of intent stating the program, institution, or site where they would like to undertake the study or research; why it is important and how it contributes to their undergraduate education and what they hope to accomplish. If the proposed study or research will include work in a foreign language, please describe the steps you have taken (or will take on-site) to acquire the necessary language skills. A detailed budget, including other sources of funding from W&M, should be submitted with the letter of intent. Both should be submitted to the Program Director of Judaic Studies, [[rlrashkover,Randi Rashkover]].
