Center for Jewish History Fellowships 2013-2014 (deadline 15 December 2012)

The Center for Jewish History in New York, which includes the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research has announced its fellowship program for 2013-2014:

"Through the Graduate Fellowship Program that began in 2002, the Center has directly supported more than 50 Ph.D. candidates as they worked to complete their dissertations using the partner collections.

Enhanced in the 2010-11 academic year, when the National Endowment for the Humanities recognized the Center as one of 25 elite research institutions around the world by funding its Fellowship Program for Senior Scholars, the Center is now the first and only Jewish studies institution to receive such validation since the NEH program was established 40 years ago.

In concert with the NEH Fellowship, the Center offers Prins Fellowships for international junior scholars, Undergraduate Research Fellowships to support outstanding college students, a Visiting Scholars Program to provide accomplished scholars the benefits of a healthy research community, and the Steinberg Emerging Jewish Filmmaker Fellowship to support the production of documentary films based on the collections housed here."
