Gratz College is delighted to announce Cohort VII of the Midcareer Fellowship. Applications are now being accepted for new students beginning the M.A. in Education (Jewish Instructional Education), the M.A. in Jewish Communal Service, the M.S. in Nonprofit Management, and the new M.S. in Camp Administration and Leadership.
Students accepted into the Midcareer Fellowship program will receive a 25% scholarship. Students in selected programs will also be eligible for additional scholarship funds from Gratz College.

The Midcareer Fellowship program was first launched in 2013 to support greater job competency, increased marketability and more diversified skills for Jewish organizational administrators, Hillel staffers, youth group directors, day and supplementary school educators, and now Jewish camp professionals as well.

Midcareer Fellows have 3 years to complete their degrees, allowing students to attend school part time. The M.A. in Education and the M.S. in Nonprofit Management are both offered entirely online. The M.A. in Jewish Communal Service requires a brief on-campus residence during Summer Institute in July; and the M.S. in Camp Administration and Leadership includes a practicum in the student’s own summer camp environment.
Fellowships are awarded on a first come, first served basis to qualified students who first successfully complete the Gratz College admissions process. To qualify, applicants must be working in the American Jewish community at least 15 hours per week for a minimum of 3 years and have earned a bachelor’s degree at least 5 years ago. A Midcareer Fellowship application may be requested from the admissions office. For more information, please contact [email protected], 215-635-7300 x140.

Hazon  in partnership with the JCC Association of North America is launching the year-long JOFEE Fellowship, beginning in May 2016, to invigorate the Jewish educational landscape by training and mentoring a cohort of outstanding JOFEE educators, who will work in Jewish communities across the country. The Fellowship is supported by a grant from the Jim Joseph Foundation, and is being developed in collaboration with Pearlstone Center, Urban Adamah, and Wilderness Torah.

Interested in becoming a JOFEE Fellow? Are you:

*  A Teva educator who wants to teach JOFEE year round?
*  A recent Adamah Fellow with education experience, who wants to bring the magic of Adamah into communities elsewhere?
*  A Jewish educator or communal professional who wants to get into JOFEE and hasn't had the opportunity?

Or do you know any of these people? Applications are now open!
