Eligibility:Applicants should:  * Be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Canada;  * Have completed all academic requirements for the Ph.D., except dissertation, by the date of application;  * Demonstrate significant course work in Jewish studies at the graduate level;  * Provide evidence of proficiency in a Jewish language (i.e. Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Aramaic, etc.);  * Be in a reasonable position to complete the work of their thesis during their fellowship year ;  * Have a proposal or prospectus that has been approved by a thesis committee;  * Complete online application in full. Partially completed applications cannot accepted. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that applications are complete by the deadline. A strong preference is given to individuals preparing for academic careers in Jewish studies, and to those who indicate that they will pursue a career in the United States Although occasional grants are awarded to students in other fields of the humanities or social sciences who demonstrate a career commitment to Jewish scholarship. To enable recipients to devote themselves fully to completing the dissertation, it is expected that they will not hold a full-time job or equivalent academic workload during the fellowship year. We request that grantees inform us of any other fellowships or grants they may receive during their fellowship year.Fellowships cannot be postponed or deferred to another year. Grantees who defer their awards will not receive special consideration upon reapplication.For re-applicants only: Because we are transitioning to online application system, you will be required to resubmit a full and completed application online. This will include transcripts and references, as well as a 2-page statement outlining how the project has developed or changed from a previous submission.Previous grantees of the Maurice and Marilyn Cohen Fund for the Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships in Jewish Studies may not reapply.
