Awards and Grants in Jewish Studies

TIJS provides awards and grants to undergraduate and graduate students to supplement academic offerings.

David R. Blumenthal Awards

The David R. Blumenthal Awards were established in 1999 by friends and colleagues of Professor Blumenthal in honor of his crucial role in shaping the Tam Institute for Jewish Studies (TIJS) at Emory. The awards recognize academic papers or projects of the highest scholarly standard that link Jewish studies to broader human concerns.
