The Li Boiskin Jewish Social Justice Fellowship

The Mauerberger Foundation Fund recognises the contribution of Li Boiskin to the Cape Town Jewish community.

The Kaplan Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Cape Town invites applications for an annual fellowship intended to advance the Jewish community’s engagement with social justice and equity. 

Named in honour of Li Boiskin for her lifetime of commitment to bettering the Jewish community and the wider world, the fellowship is made possible by generous support from the Mauerberger Foundation Fund.   

The Mauerberger Foundation Fund’s support for this fellowship arises from the fundamental principle that the Jewish community is an integral part of the wider South African society. The fellowship is intended to encourage and advance social cohesion: evidence of strong collaboration with the wider community is an essential element of such work.

Projects may, inter alia, conduct research and fieldwork, identify and promote best practice, evaluate the impact of existing initiatives, explore the application of lessons from Africa and elsewhere to the South African context, offer workshops and other forms of programming, and provide thought leadership on issues central to social justice in South Africa. The fellowship is open to NGOs, postgraduate students, and academics.

To apply, submit a proposal that outlines the rationale of the project, outlines how it will achieve these aims, describes the outputs it will produce, and provides a budget for up to R100 000 by 22 December 2023 to
