Now in its fourth decade, the Steiner Summer Yiddish Program offers college students and recent graduates, ages 18-29, 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 can also participate in paid internships and gain professional experience working on Yiddish-based projects at the Center. 

 

The 2021 Steiner Summer Yiddish Program runs May 29 to July 15, 2022. Applications are due February 6.

 

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 and digital collections, communications and publication, educational programs, exhibit planning, translation, and Yiddish education. Each fellow receives a stipend of $32,000 plus health insurance. 

 

We are now accepting applications for the 2022-23 Fellowship Program, which runs from September 2022 to August 2023. Applications are due January 3.
