Hornstein Scholarships

To be considered for these or any additional scholarships, please include your proposal of eligibility in your application's statement of purpose. No additional application procedures are necessary to apply for these funds.

Hornstein's award allocation process starts January 15 of each year, beginning with early applicants.

External Fellowship Programs

In addition to Hornstein fellowships, all applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for external scholarship programs such as those listed below. Along with providing funds that can be used to supplement Hornstein awards, many of these scholarships provide significant training and mentoring opportunities for their award winners. Please carefully note the application deadlines for each funder.

Other Sources of Scholarship Aid

Local Community Aid

Many Jewish communities in North America offer competitive, need-based aid, and/or interest-free loans to students pursuing graduate degrees. Below is a list of some of these scholarship and loan programs; students are encouraged to research their own home communities for others. Applications should be submitted directly to the awarding organization.
