IAJGS Malcolm Stern Grant applications due by April 17th

     The 2012 IAJGS Stern Grant committee invites IAJGS member organizations to submit nominations for this important grant that memorializes the late Rabbi Malcolm Stern and his efforts to increase the availability of resources for Jewish genealogical research. 
     The intention of the Stern Grant is to encourage institutions to pursue projects, activities and acquisitions that provide new or enhanced resources to benefit Jewish genealogists. The grant is given to institutions, not to individuals. For 2012 the stipend will be $3,000.
     Nominations can be made only by IAJGS member organizations -- not by individuals. We encourage individuals, however, to participate in the process by contacting their local organizations and suggesting worthy recipients.
