Call for Stern Grant Submissions - Deadline May 15, 2014 #belarus


The 2014 IAJGS Stern Grantcommittee invites 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 Rabbi Malcolm 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 non-profit institutions, not to individuals. For 2014 there is possibility
of two awards (including the John Stedman Memorial Grant) of up to $3000 each.
Nominations for the Stern Grant are usually made by IAJGS Member organizations
-- not by individuals. We encourage individuals, however to participate in the
process by contacting their local or most relevant IAJGS Member organization
to suggest worthy recipients for the grant. For a list of Member organizations
of IAJGS, see more information
about the grant (and past grantees), go to
Submissions by IAJGS Member organizations can be made online at http://stevemor= . Instructions can be found on the site.Please note
that a separate nomination for the John Stedman Memorial Grant is not required
The nomination should be made for the Stern Grant as the evaluation criteria and
process for both grants are the same, and any nominations received for the
Stern Grant will automatically also be considered for the John Stedman Memorial
