My experiences, my passion for teaching and history, my love for youth was seen and given a platform — Carolina, 2019 – 20 Pell University Fellow
The Pell University Fellowship and Manovill University Fellowship provide undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to become essential members of the Holocaust Center staff. Pell Fellows and Manovill Fellows assist with virtual programming, create innovative lesson plans, mentor students, and facilitate discussion. The Holocaust Center annually reaches more than 20,000 students across Northern California. Virtual programming has expanded the Holocaust Center’s reach beyond California and the United States.
Each Fellowship is a paid position, with a commitment of about 10 hours a week, October through June. Fellows may receive course credit upon completion.
Special support and funding are made possible by the Pell Family Foundation and Lilly Manovill Tauber Endrei Education Fund.
The Pell University Fellowship is inspired by the legacy of Joseph and Eda Pell, survivors of the Holocaust and strong advocates for Holocaust education.
The Manovill University Fellowship is named in memory of Lilly Manovill z”l, who courageously helped fellow Jews from the Budapest ghetto escape and survive. Lilly had a passion for research and supporting the community.
