IAJGS Malcolm Stern Grant applications due by April 17th #general
The 2012 IAJGS Stern Grant committee invites IAJGS member organizations to
submit nominations for this important grant that memorializes the late Rabbi
Malcolm Stern and his efforts to increase the availability of resources for
Jewish genealogical research.
The intention of the Stern Grant is to encourage institutions to pursue
projects, activities and acquisitions that provide new or enhanced resources
to benefit Jewish genealogists. The grant is given to institutions, not to
individuals. For 2012 the stipend will be $3,000.
Nominations can be made only by IAJGS member organizations -- not by
individuals. We encourage individuals, however, to participate in the
process by contacting their local organizations and suggesting worthy
recipients. For a list of the JGSs and SIGS that comprise IAJGS, see:
