Yiddish Book Center Fellowship & Summer Programs

From the Yiddish Book Center:

Deadlines are approaching for two remarkable opportunities at the Book Center: the Steiner Summer Program for college students and the Fellowship Program for recent college grads.

The Fellowship Program for recent grads offers an exceptional opportunity to work and learn at the forefront of Yiddish culture. Fellows spend a year working on Book Center projects in the areas of education, bibliography, and ethnography. A strong background in Jewish Studies or a related field and a working knowledge of Yiddish are required. Application Deadline: January 3, 2011.

For college students who want to explore Yiddish language and culture amidst gardens, apple orchards and stacks of Yiddish books, the seven-week Steiner Summer Program can’t be beat! It’s tuition-free and students can earn six college credits. No prior knowledge of Yiddish required. Application Deadline: February 1, 2011.

Deadlines are fast approaching! Spread the word!
