CASJE (Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education) has released a request for proposals (RFP) to promote research that can make a difference in how Jewish education is practiced. Three grants, up to $30,000 each, will be awarded to stimulate time-concentrated, thematically-focused research that can be applied to the practice of Jewish education.

The full CASJE RFP can be viewed at:

The deadline to submit a proposal is November 6, 2017. Awards will be made December 22, 2017. The selection committee is comprised of members of the CASJE Board. The research funded by the grant will be conducted within a continuous period of 6 months, and completed within 12 months of the award.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Principal Investigators (PIs) and at least one of the Co-PIs (if a collaboration is proposed) applying for a research grant must have an earned doctorate in an academic discipline or professional field.
  • Proposals are accepted from the U.S. and internationally, however all proposals must be submitted in English and budgets must be proposed in U.S. Dollars.

CASJE is committed to sharing knowledge to improve Jewish education. Upon completion of the study, grantees will: 1) Submit a paper/spotlight/consultation proposal for presentation at the annual Network for Research in Jewish Education conference, and 2) Publish a practitioner-oriented blog/article and/or present at a practitioner-oriented conference to engage the field about the project’s findings. Additionally, CASJE will make available data generated by awardees for secondary analysis by other researchers.
