The Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre offers subventions up to a maximum of $2000 to help defray the costs of publishing scholarly books in the field of Jewish studies. Subventions may be either transferred directly to a press or used to cover the costs of expenses associated with the production of a volume. A volume may be either a monograph (single or multi-authored) or an edited collection, as long as one of the main authors or editors is affiliated with the Koschitzky Centre. The Centre welcomes applications on a rolling basis from all faculty and graduate students affiliated with the Centre. Past recipients of Koschitzky Centre Publications Grants are eligible to apply but an applicant may receive no more than one grant every two academic years and not for the same book project.

Apart from subventions paid directly to a press, eligible expenses may include, but are not limited to, hiring a copyeditor or indexer, and paying for image permissions.
