JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Call for Stern Grant Submissions - Deadline May 15, 2014 #unitedkingdom
The 2014 IAJGS Stern Grant committee 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
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 $3,000 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 http://www.iajgs.org/members/members.html .
For more information about the grant (and past grantees), go to http://www.iajgs.org/awards/stern.html .
Submissions by IAJGS Member organizations can be made online at http://stevemorse.org/awards/nominate.php .
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 Grant.

The deadline for nominations is midnight May 15, 2014.
