The George and Gertrude Gerzon Endowed Scholarship for Eastern European Holocaust Studies was established to support students whose study abroad program includes projects related to Holocaust studies, with a preference first for those studying in Poland and second for those studying in Eastern Europe.


Juniors that are eligible to receive financial aid from Brandeis University whose GPA is at least a 3.0 may apply for the Gerzon scholarship. Typical awards range from $500 to $1,500. Applicants must plan to take course work or complete projects related to Holocaust Studies. Jewish Studies in Prague (CET) is an approved program with coursework that best matches this award. Speak with your advisor about other programs that may qualify.


Students can apply within their Brandeis study abroad application through the Sachar Scholarship Eligibility questionnaire. An additional essay question is required.

Please Note: Applying to the program above does not guarantee automatic Gerzon funding.
