The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) is pleased to announce that the call for submissions for the 2021 Rabbi Malcolm Stern Grant and the John Stedman Memorial Fund Award is now open. The grant and award are expected to be $3,000 each. The purpose of these grants is to encourage institutions or organizations to pursue projects, activities and acquisitions that provide new or enhanced resources to benefit those researching Jewish Genealogy.

The grants may only be awarded to a not-for-profit institution or organisation or charity (and may not be awarded to individuals). Nominations may be submitted by any individual or organization, and self-nomination by organisations is permitted.
The deadline for submitting the Stern/Stedman Grant Nomination form and any supporting documentation is Thursday 20 May 2021 at 7pm EDT. (USA). The grants are planned to be announced during the 2021 IAJGS Virtual Conference, which will take place August 2–5, 2021.
