Steiner Summer Yiddish Program


Exciting Opportunities for College Students and Recent College Grads!

If you are a student who does not know any Yiddish, but is passionate about Jewish history, culture, art and literature, you may be eligible for a summer of tuition-free, intensive language instruction in the Steiner Summer Yiddish Program.

This is a rigorous, fast-paced program, and students are advised to take the language and culture courses for academic credit (tuition-free). The 2014 Steiner Summer Yiddish Program runs from June 8 through July 25. Applications are due by February 10.

Current college students who haven’t studied Yiddish can apply for our Beginner track, which includes daily language classes and an introductory course in Yiddish culture and history.

Students who have completed a year of Yiddish can apply for our Intermediate track, which offers intermediate language instruction, as well as exciting opportunities to contribute to ongoing programs and projects at the Center. If accepted, intermediate students will receive free housing and a $1000 stipend.

If you’re a college senior or recent graduate with intermediate or advanced Yiddish, you can apply for the Yiddish Book Center’s Fellowship Program. Talented young Yiddishists from around the world spend a year as full-time members of our staff, developing valuable skills and playing key roles in the Center’s established projects and new initiatives. Applicants should have a strong background in Jewish studies or related fields and a commitment to Yiddish language and culture. Each Fellow receives a stipend of $28,000 plus health insurance. The program begins in September 2014 and applications are due January 6.

A sheynem dank! Thank you!
