Gratz College Announces Master’s Midcareer Fellowships in Jewish Education and Jewish Communal Service

Gratz College has announced the creation of fourteen Midcareer Fellowships: seven for the Gratz master’s in Jewish Education and seven for the Gratz master’s in Jewish Communal Service. Gratz is offering this fellowship to make these degrees more accessible to deserving candidates through a combination of significantly reduced tuition and flexible scheduling.

Gratz College Midcareer Fellows will benefit from a 45% reduction in tuition and have three years to complete their degrees. As a longtime supporter of distance learning, Gratz College also offers the students the opportunity to take many of their courses online. The master’s in Jewish Education is one of only two such programs in the country that can be completed entirely online. The master’s in Jewish Communal Service combines online and on-campus courses, with the latter scheduled at times conducive to working professionals. Finally, while both master’s programs require internships, working students can, in many cases, arrange to complete their internships at their current places of employment.

As a pluralistic institution, students from different branches within Judaism are welcome to participate in both the master’s in Jewish Education and the master’s in Jewish Communal Service. In class, concepts are applied across the spectrum of various Jewish movements.

Gratz College is currently accepting applications for Midcareer Fellows in Jewish Education and Jewish Communal Service for the fall semester. Students who select Jewish Communal Service are required to take the Nonprofit Management track, which combines a Jewish knowledge base with skills, such as fundraising, marketing and fiscal management.
