|Do you know any college students who have studied Yiddish? Or any who should? If so, please help us, and them, by making sure they’re aware of the Yiddish Book Center’s Fellowship Program and Steiner Summer Yiddish Program.
Diario Judío México - Our Fellowship Program is for recent college graduates with strong academic backgrounds, at least a working knowledge of Yiddish language, and a commitment to learning more. Fellows spend a year as full-time staff members, learning valuable professional skills and contributing to the Center’s major projects—bibliography, communications and publication, digital collections, educational programs, translation, and Yiddish education. Each fellow receives a stipend of $30,000 plus health insurance.
Now in its fourth decade, our Steiner Summer Yiddish Program offers undergraduate and graduate students, ages 18-26, an opportunity to take a full year of Yiddish-language courses (worth up to six college credits) in seven weeks, tuition-free, at the Yiddish Book Center. Beginner- and intermediate-level students deepen their language skills, gain substantive knowledge of Central and Eastern European Jewish history and culture, and build a community of yidishkayt in a supportive residential setting. Intermediate students also have the opportunity to participate in paid internships and gain professional experience working on Yiddish-based projects at the Center.
The 2019 Steiner Summer Yiddish Program runs June 3 to July 19, 2019. Apply by February 11.
