Grants to USA, Canada, and International individuals, organizations, museums, and historical societies for programs, projects, and activities that promote increased understanding and awareness of Jewish history in the Southern United States.

There are three different grant funding opportunities available:

1) The Project Completion Grant is intended to facilitate the completion of projects relevant to Southern Jewish history. Grants may not be used to fund research or travel, but are intended to cover production or completion expenses such as the editing or indexing of a publication, costs related to illustrations or photo permissions, the production of a media project, or the fabrication of exhibits.

2) The Research/Travel Grant assists scholars and independent researchers with travel and other expenses related to conducting research in Southern Jewish history. Graduate students completing doctoral dissertations are particularly encouraged to apply.

3) The Scott and Donna Langston Archival Grant supports projects aiming to preserve archival materials related to Southern Jewish history.
