Building and Strengthening the Pipeline of Researchers


A core value of CASJE is building capacity in the field of Jewish education research and cultivating the next generation of scholars. CASJE provides opportunities to support the development of a healthy pipeline of researchers who will continue to contribute to the field for years to come.

Activities in this area include:

  • CASJE's Applied Research Fellowship, which aims to prepare scholars to meet the research needs of American Jewish educational and communal organizations, to thereby expand the pipeline of researchers positioned to conduct critical, high-quality applied research in Jewish education and contemporary Jewish life.
  • Appointments of a seat on the CASJE Advisory Board for an emerging scholar.
