Midcareer Fellowships

Applications are now being accepted for new students to join Cohort VII of the Midcareer Fellowship. All Midcareer Fellows will receive a 25% tuition scholarship; and students in selected programs will also be eligible for an additional 20% scholarship.

The following Gratz College programs are eligible for the Midcareer Fellowship:
M.A. in Education (Jewish Instructional Education concentration)
M.S. in Nonprofit Management
: Jewish Nonprofit Mgt and Jewish Educational Administration
M.S. in Camp Administration and Leadership
M.A. in Jewish Communal Service

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.

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. Some programs also require a few additional courses to meet Midcareer Fellowship requirements.

The Midcareer Fellowship program was first launched in 2013 to support greater job competency, increased marketability, and more diversified skills for Jewish professionals. The program is ideal for Federation, JCC, and synagogue administrators, Hillel staffers, youth group directors, day and supplementary school educators and administrators, Jewish camp directors and others who work in American Jewish organizations.
