Application for Holocaust Education Fund

This application is to be used by both History Department faculty proposing a speaker or project, and by other Miami University departments and faculty requesting History Department funding support for university projects.

The Holocaust Education Fund exists to support any educational project at Miami University related to the study of the Jews in the Holocaust.  Priority is given to teaching-related matters (to bring speakers to classes or to a public forum, to support travel by classes, purchases of material for the library or classroom use).  Faculty, graduate students or undergraduate students also may apply for funds to travel to conferences or research about the Jews in the Holocaust, but to meet the desire of the donors, those recipients must also present findings in a public forum at Miami.  Individuals may only receive one travel grant per fiscal year equal to the amount the College of Arts and Science provides for a conference.  All grants will be made on the basis of merit and availability of funds.
