Silverstein Scholars

The Scholars are announced...

 

The Silverstein Scholarship is named after the late Dr. Joseph Silverstein who earned his B.A (in 1930) and his M.A. (in 1932) from the University of Alabama. As part of his Will a bequest was made to the University in 1998 and an endowment was established in his name. From this endowment we annually award Silverstein Scholarships to our highest achieving Religious Studies majors and Judaic Studies minors.

As of the Fall of 2007, the Department distinguished the Silverstein Scholarship from the Silverstein Fellowship--the latter being awarded to students to assist with funding their education through working as assistants in the Department. Apart from assisting in the main office and helping Professors with their individual research projects, some Silverstein Fellows also assist with the Department's large enrollment REL 100 classes, providing them with valuable classroom experience.

 

 


 

 

The Department of Religious Studies is extremely pleased to display the names of recipients of the undergraduate Silverstein Scholarship (formerly known as the Silverstein Fellowship, but renamed in the Fall of 2007). This award recognizes the consistently strong accomplishments of those students enrolled in our Department who are either majoring in Religious Studies or those completing the Department's minor in Judaic Studies.

Each year's Silverstein Scholars receive their award at the Department's Honors Day reception in April (immediately following the College of Arts & Science's Undergraduate Honors Convocation)--to which all of our majors and minors, along with their families, are invited.
