Scholarships and Prizes

At a time when higher education funding is decreasing nationally, the Parkes Institute is fortunate to be able to offer a number of annual competitive studentships.

The Parkes Institute and the University of Southampton are pleased to announce a number of annual competitive studentships:

Ian Karten MA Studentships

These studentships provide assistance towards tuition fees for full- and part-time students of the MA programme in Jewish History and Culture (Southampton and London). Applications are made by applying for the MA itself, with an indication on the personal statement that you wish to be considered for a Karten studentship. Applications should be submitted by the beginning of May each year. Students from east Europe are strongly encouraged to apply (Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, or Slovakia).

ORT Marks Graduate Outreach Fellowships

Two fellowships of £5000 each are offered each year to MA or PhD students working on any aspect of Jewish history and culture.

More information.




Parkes Outreach Fellowships

Outreach Fellowships can become available for PhD and MA students to contribute to the outreach programme of the Parkes Institute. Outreach Fellows devote one day per week to the Parkes outreach programme with particular emphasis on adult education, working with schools and colleges in the South of England, and particularly the Southampton region, and public events in the broad field of Jewish/non-Jewish relations. Applications are opened as positions become available.
