Funding Opportunity: Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program (Poland)

Deadline for Applications: January 15, 2017


The Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program is now accepting applications. Since 2000, the AJC Fellows Program has provided a unique educational opportunity for graduate students and seniors to learn about the Holocaust in situ in the context of Poland’s history and Jewish heritage. Through travel in Poland for three weeks, during which time Fellows visit Krakow, Warsaw, Lódź, Treblinka, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz), Fellows gain not only knowledge of the Holocaust sites they visit, but also an understanding of the legacy of the Holocaust in Poland, its effects on collective memory, and complexities surrounding such categories as victim, bystander, and perpetrator. All program costs, except travel to the program’s start in New York, are covered.To learn more about past Fellows, please see bios of recent cohorts here: 2016 and 2015.
Faculty participation is available through the Faculty Fellows program.
The Auschwitz Jewish Center Fellows Program will run from June 30 – July 23, 2017. The application is due on January 15, 2017. Candidates of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Yael Friedman at
