How to Apply to the Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe
As of January 2013, the only grant programme open is the Academic Jewish Studies programme.
For full details, please refer to the Academic Jewish Studies section of our website, the Notes of Guidance for this programme and our website’s FAQ page.
In summary, individuals and institutions must be based at European institutions and, where individual applicants are concerned, they must intend to remain in Europe and contribute to Jewish Studies there.
All topics within the field of Jewish Studies will be considered eligible. However, secondary school education, informal education and documentary films will not be funded within the context of this grant programme.
Institutions and individuals may apply to more than one grant category within the Academic Jewish Studies Grant Programme, but they can only apply once to any given grant category. For example, an individual applicant may apply for a Doctoral Fellowship and a Language Studies Grant, but he or she cannot apply for two language grants. Likewise, an institutional applicant may apply for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship and a Translation of Important Texts Grant, but may not apply to host more than one Post-Doctoral Research Fellow.
Eligible costs will vary by category, but, in all cases, institutional overheads will not be funded under the Academic Jewish Studies Grant Programme. Institutional overheads include the costs of maintaining, heating and insuring the building in which your department is housed, as well as the taxes your University pays for that building.
Please consult the FAQ page before contacting the Foundation. If your query is not answered there, please contact Robin Nobel email@example.com with a specific query.
JEWISH HERITAGE PROGRAMME
Our Jewish Heritage programme is currently closed. It will re-open later in the year. If you have not received email updates from us previously, please add your email address to our home page so you can be notified of further grant rounds.
NOTIFICATION OF OUTCOMES
The next meeting of the Trustees of the Foundation will be in mid-July 2013. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application within a month after the Trustee meeting. The FAQ page deals with exceptions to this rule.
If the Trustees decide to award your organisation a grant, you will receive a formal letter, the terms and conditions of the grant, a form requesting your bank details and a baseline report form. You must sign, fill in and return each of these documents to us before we are able to make any grant payments. Failure to provide the relevant information or sign the required forms could lead to cancellation of your grant.
