HBI-BGI Scholar-in-Residence Program

The Scholar-in-Residence program, a joint initiative of the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute and the Brandeis-Genesis Institute for Russian Jewry, provides scholars currently living in, or who have emigrated from, the Former Soviet Union with the opportunity to be in residence at Brandeis University while working on significant projects in the field of Jewish women’s and gender studies.

The program offers housing, a monthly stipend, and coverage of travel expenses. The selected scholar will receive shared office space at the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University and access to all available Brandeis University resources. The recipients may have the opportunity to present their research to the Brandeis community. SIRs also contribute to the HBI’s Donna Sudarsky Memorial Working Paper Series.

Scholars-in-Residence receive a full access to university's academic resources and benefit from the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with staff and faculty at Brandeis and surrounding institutions, while contributing to the academic life on campus.

The HBI-BGI Scholar-in-Residence program is supported by the Genesis Philanthropy Group, Barbara Resnek and Arlene Kaufman.
