Brandeis University, Boston

The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute awards grants to support research or artistic projects in Jewish women’s and gender studies across a range of disciplines. Awards are made to graduate students, early career, and established researchers. The HBI Research Awards are funded by gifts from the HBI Board.

The purpose of the HBI Research Award is to support work that has the potential to make a significant contribution to the field of Jewish Gender Studies in one of the following ways:

  • by using the lens of gender to inform the field of Jewish Studies
  • by bringing insights from Jewish Studies to the field of Women’s and Gender Studies
  • by exploring interreligious collaborations between Jewish women and women of other faiths.
