Translation Fellowship

The Yiddish Book Center Translation Fellowship program trains, supports, and encourages a new generation of Yiddish literary translators.

Each year, the program selects a group of emerging translators who are versed in Yiddish language and culture. Fellows are provided with training, teamed with a mentor, and awarded a generous stipend to complete a book-length project of their choosing.

Over the course of a year, fellows learn the craft of literary translation and become part of a burgeoning community of lifelong Yiddish translators. Together, they develop the skills, strategies, and techniques necessary to bring the richness of Yiddish literature to a broader readership.

The application deadline for the 2016 Translation Fellowship is November 15, 2015.
