Apply to the Yiddish Book Center Translation Fellowship Program

General Application Information

Translation Fellowship applications require a complete online form, including all supporting materials (cover letter, project description, and sample translation). Additionally, applicants are expected to submit two letters of recommendation from people who can attest to their capacity for hard work and ability to complete a challenging yet enjoyable yearlong project—advisors, supervisors, colleagues, editors, publishers, etc.  Recommenders should send their letters directly to [email protected] with the name of the applicant in the subject line.

Our online form now allows you to save a draft of your application. Click the “save draft” button at the bottom of the page and copy and save the secure link that appears in the green box at the top of the screen.

The deadline to submit applications was January 5, 2024. If you would like to stay in the loop about next year's application process, sign up for our emails here.
