The Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York City is pleased to offer a fellowship for emigrating scholars, artists, museum professionals, and researchers through a grant from The Vivian G. Prins Foundation. The grant is in honor of Bronia Brandman, a survivor of Auschwitz and one of the Museum’s earliest and most steadfast volunteers. The Vivian G. Prins Fellowship Program is an opportunity in multidisciplinary fields to conduct research, engage in scholarly exchange, take part in public workshops, seminars, related collaborations and art installations, and to provide emergent and established experts from around the world with opportunities for professional development and training in the United States. Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $48,000 during a one year residency at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust working on a particular topic of interest that is relevant to the Museum. Fellowship participants will develop first-hand experience, expertise, and confidence on which to base an interpretive career in museums, whether as museum curator, expert-in-residence or museum educator. The fellowship serves as a valuable first step for those seeking integration into North American cultural and academic institutions.
