Gratz College Announces 3rd Cohort in Master’s Fellowships in Jewish Education, Nonprofit Management and Jewish Communal Service

Applications accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until all positions are filled.

Melrose Park, PA – Gratz College is delighted to announce the creation of 14 new fellowships: seven for the M.A. in Jewish Education and seven for the M.S. in Nonprofit Management for Faith-based Organizations and the M.A. in Jewish Communal Service. This is the third cohort of the successful Gratz College Midcareer Fellowship program which was first launched in 2013.

For Jewish organizational administrators, Hillel staffers, youth group directors, day and supplementary school educators and all professionals working in Jewish organizations, the Gratz master’s programs in Jewish Education, Nonprofit Management and Jewish Communal Service offer the promise of greater job competency, increased marketability and more diversified skills. These are enviable benefits in a world where harried professionals are being asked to shoulder diverse responsibilities while their employers cut back on training and professional development.

Gratz College Midcareer Fellows have three years to complete their degrees, allowing students to attend school part time. Students can also take many (or all!) of their courses online. The M.A. in Jewish Education and the M.S. in Nonprofit Management are both offered entirely online. The M.A. in Jewish Communal Service requires minimal on-campus presence, usually completed during intensive 6-day Summer Institute sessions. The fellowship’s generous tuition awards make these graduate degrees much more affordable as well.

Gratz College is currently accepting applications for Midcareer Fellowships in Jewish Education (MAJEd), Nonprofit Management for Faith-based Organizations (MSNPM), and Jewish Communal Service (MAJCS). The MSNPM and MAJCS require three additional courses to qualify for the Fellowship. For more information, contact Dodi Klimoff, Assistant Director of Admissions, at 215-635-7300, ex. 140 or dklimoff@gratz.edu.
