Avram Zeleznikow PhD Scholarship – Russian Jewish Immigrants
Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation, Faculty of Arts, Monash University
Research topic, “The settlement experience of Russian Jewish immigrants in Melbourne after 1975 and the patterns of integration of their children”.
The research project is to further understanding of the immigrant waves from the former USSR who settled in Melbourne after 1975, and of the second and third generation, with reference to integration into the Victorian Jewish community and Australian society.
The project will include consideration of the ongoing impact on the immigrants of their experience of life in the Soviet Union, their current financial status and future financial expectations, their sense of responsibility in supporting ageing family members, and their attitudes to participation in voluntary work and communal fundraising.
The scholarship is established in memory of the late Mr Avraham Zeleznikow, OAM, who provided leadership to the Jewish community, to Jewish Care and its predecessor organisations over more than half a century, and who had a special interest in assisting the Russian immigrants who settled in Melbourne.
The scholarship recipient will be under the primary supervision of Professor Andrew Markus of the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation.
Annual Stipend $26,288 (As per Monash University postgraduate 2016 stipend rate)
