Undergraduate and Graduate Awards
The Leonard and Helen R. Stulman Jewish Studies Program offers two awards to support travel and research. The Stulman award is granted on a competitive basis to undergraduate and graduate students proposing a worthy plan of study or research that requires material support. The John Koren Award for Holocaust Research and Education is granted annually to a student researching the Shoah. Recipients of the John Koren Award will be expected to make a public presentation of their research results at some point during the year of their award. Awards are given in the late spring to support research over the following summer and academic year. The maximum for both awards is $2,500.

Role of Holocaust Memorials and Museums in Germany's Holocaust Education
My objective is to visit six or more German memorial sites and museums dedicated to the Holocaust to determine what role such institutions play in German Holocaust education. These museums include: Shoa.de, German Resistance Memorial Center, Silent Heroes Memorial Center, Buchenwald Memorial, Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, Ravensbruck Women’s Concentration Camp Memorial Museum, Bergen Belsen Memorial, and House of the Wannsee Conference. I will also visit Berlin’s Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the Jewish Museum of Berlin, which is shaped significantly by the history of the Third Reich and the Holocaust.
