Course Enhancement Matching Grants
The Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies would like to announce the solicitation of applications for funding of student learning programs in areas of Jewish Studies at Seaver College. The Glazer Institute will award grants, amounting to no more than $10,000 total funding per academic year, that provide matching funds for emerging student initiatives that involve Jewish or Israeli Studies. Such initiatives could include conferences, student research, convocation programs, travel to Israel, or internship programs. These programs could exist in any school or co-curricular area, but preference may be given to programs that exist in conjunction with and enhance student coursework or to programs designed to evolve into self-sustaining, long-term programs within Pepperdine University. All awards will be made on a competitive basis, and must incorporate funding from at least one other source.
Proposals should make clear the connection between the program and the mission of the Glazer Institute and the University. They should specify the co-sponsoring divisions, programs, or schools and include a proposed budget to cover all the expenses of the program. Guidelines for written proposals are attached. If you have questions, contact Connie Lee (connie.lee@pepperdine.edu), Program Coordinator of the Glazer Institute.
Awards will be granted on a case-by-case basis throughout the school year. Completed proposals should be submitted to Connie Lee (connie.lee@pepperdine.edu) in Office 327 of the Law School.

Application Process:

Who May Apply: Any student, faculty, or staff member may request funding for projects, but the appropriate administrator must guarantee the provision of matching funds. The proposed program must have a target audience of students at Seaver College, and must incorporate themes of Jewish, Israeli, or interfaith studies.
Grant Amounts: The Glazer Institute will provide a total of $10,000 in awards per academic year, and grant size will vary depending on the requested program and matching funds. After receiving each proposal, the Glazer Institute will contact the requester to discuss the decision-making process.
