The Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University (HEFNU) is dedicated to expanding and strengthening Holocaust studies at institutions of higher education around the world. Teaching grants help faculty launch new courses related to the Holocaust or enhance institutional resources to reinforce such courses.
As part of HEFNU's mission to increase the number of Holocaust-related courses on college campuses, the Foundation accepts applications for grants to support Holocaust instruction. In particular, HEFNU seeks to fund proposals at colleges and universities where courses in Holocaust studies are not available or where they are in need of further support. Proposals that demonstrate a solid plan to implement the course within two years of receiving the grant, that will sustain the course beyond a single year, that incorporate an event that will reach students across the campus, and/or that include a financial commitment from the university are especially welcome.
The Foundation considers applications to fund any phase of course preparation from professional development to implementation. The Foundation also welcomes proposals to expand library offerings for students taking courses about the Holocaust, to support bringing a speaker to campus, or other ideas that offer knowledge about the Holocaust on your campus.
