Sunday, June 10, 2018 and Monday, June 11, 2018

George Washington University, Washington, DC

With generous support from the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education and the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for the Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis University, the NRJE is once again holding its Emerging Scholars Mentoring Seminar prior to and in conjunction with the annual conference. As in the past, the goals of the seminar are (a) to create a supportive professional network among mentors and Emerging Scholars; and (b) for Emerging Scholars to hear the behind-the-scenes stories of how to succeed as a productive researcher in the field. At the seminar, Emerging Scholars will have time to speak with an individual mentor and to connect with peers and other mentors in group discussions and activities. The seminar will run from 2PM to 8pm on Sunday (the day before the start of the NRJE conference). There will also be some meeting time during the morning and afternoon of Monday. The seminar (and the conference) will take place at George Washington  University.

All graduate students, junior faculty members, and early-career research-oriented practitioners who are members of NRJE are invited to apply. Priority will be given to graduate students who have completed their coursework and to junior faculty within four years of degree completion. NRJE/CASJE will provide participants up to $500 to help defray travel costs (limited to airfare, accommodations, and/or ground transportation).

Applications can be found here. They are due March 15, 2018. Questions? Contact co-chair Dr. Evie Rotstein and Dr. Meredith Katz.

Note: The seminar takes place prior to the NRJE/ASSJ Conference.
