Fellowships: CAJM Poland

Deadline: August 28, 2017

The Council of American Jewish Museums is offering
a limited number of competitive fellowships for
its program to Poland in Fall of 2017. The trip is part
of CAJM’s emerging international fellowship
program—designed to immerse our members in
essential learning experiences abroad, with private
access to leading colleagues, institutions, and sites, as
well as opportunities to talk with colleagues about
the work of Jewish museums globally.

In October of 2017 (approx. October 22-29), CAJM
will send five outstanding Jewish-museum
professionals to Poland for approximately one week
of learning at sites such as:

• POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, and
other sites in Warsaw
• Chmielnik, Dabrowka Tarnowska, and Tarnow
• The Auschwitz Jewish Center
• Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum
• Sites in Krakow, including the Galicia Jewish
Museum and the Jewish Quarter
• Orientation and follow-up activities
The program is being designed with Taube Jewish
Heritage Tours, and with counsel from CAJM Advisor
Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett.

Fellowships will cover entrance fees to museums and
historic sites, expert program leadership, tours, hotel
rooms for duration of official program, and
meals/transportation that are part of the organized
group activities. Recipients or their employer will be
responsible for round-trip airfare plus miscellaneous
expenses including: additional meals,
international travel and health insurance, personal
expenses, gratuities, and additional ground
transportation (taxis, public transportation).
