Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International educators and scholars to develop and present history workshops in an eligible subject to high school and college students. Fellows will research and prepare curricula at the funding source's institution during the spring semester. The Fellow will be encouraged to use the time at the Center as a research or learning project and will be provided with mentorship and intellectual support.

The Center for Jewish History offers a Spring 2020 Teaching Fellowship for scholars/educators to prepare and present primary sources-based workshops to college and high school students, drawing from the collections of the Center’s partner institutions: The American Jewish Historical Society, The American Sephardi Federation, The Leo Baeck Institute, The Yeshiva University Museum, and The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.

The Center has been developing educational workshops with primary sources for both high schools and universities – customized in response to specific educational and/or thematic requests from the faculty and students’ needs. Examples of the Center's workshops in the fall semester include Antisemitism in the 1930s, Introduction to Research Methods, Europe at the Turn of 20th Century, Art and Social Movements, Issues of Immigration in the 19th and 20th Centuries, Jews in 19th Century America, Fashion Designers’ Creative Process, etc.

Workshops usually take between 60 and 90 minutes, and their formula includes student small-group hands-on activities with primary sources based on a worksheet, followed by short presentations student groups, facilitated by the Center’s educator.

The Teaching Fellow is expected to spend up to 10 hours a week at the Center during the spring semester (February 10-June 30), researching materials to be used in an educational context in response to the needs and requests of various groups, selecting primary sources and preparing worksheets (in collaboration with the Center’s educator), and leading workshops at the Center.
