After completing a BS at Rochester College and MTS and ThM at Emory University, Rebekah Haigh became a Fulbright Fellow at Hebrew University in 2017-2018. In 2018, she joined the PhD program in Religions of Mediterranean Antiquity at Princeton. While her dissertation centers on ritual and violence in ancient Judaism, she also explores the role of the Dead Sea Scrolls in contemporary political, religious, and cultural discourse.
Rebekah was a GradFUTURES Fellow at New America Foundation in 2021.
"Taking part in the GradFUTURES Fellowship program was an enriching experience both professionally and personally. It opened up a whole world of experiences and possibilities that I plan on exploring in the future."
