YIVO 2019-2020 Fellowships

YIVO’s annual fellowships in Eastern European and American Jewish History are now open for application. More information and the online application form can be found here: https://yivo.org/List-of-Fellowships

Each year, YIVO awards a series of Max Weinreich Center Research Fellowships for scholarly research in YIVO’s library and archival collections. These fellowships are intended primarily, but not exclusively, for graduate students and emerging scholars. Each fellowship requires a public lecture by the holder, to be held during or immediately after the fellow’s research period. Fellows are usually expected to spend a period of four to six weeks in residence. This can be divided into several research trips, in consultation with YIVO staff.

* Please note that some of our fellowship awards have increased.*
