The Nemirow Family Prize for Excellence in Holocaust Studies

The Prize may be awarded for high achievement in JWST 230 “The Holocaust,” for the completion of original research projects other student successes deserving of recognition.

The Arnold Nemirow Scholarship for Holocaust Studies

The Arnold Nemirow Scholarship supports CofC students in Holocaust, genocide, human rights, racism, and antisemitism studies here at the College and abroad. Preference for this scholarship goes first to students with financial need and a desire to study abroad either with the College of Charleston or in exchange to another institution. Beyond this, the Nemirow Scholarship may be used for the support of research projects, training opportunities, and the costs of attendance at the College for students working in topics supported by the Zucker/Goldberg Center.

In addition to these named awards, the Zucker/Goldberg Center has additional funding available for the support of student attendance at CofC and their hopes to travel abroad.  If you are a student in search of funding, please begin with the Yaschik/Arnold Jewish Studies Program scholarships tab, here.
