We invite Ukrainian and foreign scholars who research Jewish civilization (i.e., history, culture, religion, literature, language and so forth), translators of fiction and nonfiction books written in Jewish languages, artists, etc. to become members of the Ukrainian Association for Jewish Studies (UAJS). The association is open to scholars as well as to undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students.
Members of the UAJS shall not take any public or private actions aimed at incitement to racial, ethnic, national, religious, gender, or to cultural hatred, to discrimination against people with disabilities, or to intolerance based on sexual orientation or age. If the UAJS Presidium receives confirmed information concerning such actions by any member of the organization, he/she will be excluded from the UAJS.
UAJS members can:
• participate in all UAJS events and use its services with discounted rates;
• obtain advice and other assistance to receive grants for research projects, conferences, seminar, and so forth;
• use the UAJS library and other academic resources;
• appeal to the UAJS management to protect members’ interests;

• participate in the UAJS General Meeting or in its governing bodies to resolve issues facing the UAJS.
UAJS has only individual membership, which encompasses two categories:
• Full Member

Members of both categories have equal rights to use the possibilities given by UAJS.
The 2021 membership fee for Ukrainian citizens is 300 UAH (Full Membership) and 100 UAH (Student Membership), and for foreign citizens $30 (Full Membership) and $10 (Student Membership). Annual membership renewal is due each year by February 1.
