Yiddish Book Center’s Fellowship Program

The Yiddish Book Center offers a fellowship program for college graduates with strong backgrounds in Jewish studies or related disciplines, a working knowledge of Yiddish, and a commitment to Yiddish language and culture. 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. The 2018–19 fellowship program runs from September 2018 to August 2019; the deadline for applications is 7 January 2018. For more information, visit
