The University Fellowship provides undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to become essential members of the Holocaust Center staff. Fellows mentor students, conduct research in the Tauber Holocaust Library and Archives, and create innovative lesson plans. The Holocaust Center annually reaches more than 20,000 students across Northern California.
Fellows work 10 hours a week and occasional evenings and Sundays (October through June). Upon completion, fellows receive a stipend of $5,000 and course credit when applicable.
Special support and funding are made possible by the Pell University Fellowship Fund and the Lilly Manovill Tauber Endrei Education Fund.
The application period for the 2018-2019 University Fellowship is now closed. If you would like to be notified when the 2019-2020 application period opens, please complete our inquiry form >

I can’t express how fortunate I am, to have experienced the University Fellowship with the JFCS Holocaust Center. Over the course of the year, my mentors gave me every opportunity to learn not just about Holocaust education, but about being an effective teacher and leader in our local and global communities.
