The Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence Scholarship aims to encourage and support Jewish Studies on the University of Kentucky campus. Students selected to become JHFE scholars will declare and commit to completing a minor in Jewish Studies in a maximum of four years. They will also attend and participate regularly in Jewish Studies programming on campus. As part of the JHFE scholar experience, they will be expected to participate in an original scholarly research project under the guidance of a Jewish Studies faculty mentor. This experience will include work helping to build, index, and make accessible the growing Kentucky Jewish Heritage Oral History repository. Any undergraduate who will pursue a Jewish Studies minor is eligible to apply.
