Slifka Arts Grants Program

The Blanksteen Virtual Curatorial Fellowship

June 6 – August 12, 2022

The Blanksteen Curatorial Fellowship provides a $5250 stipend for current Yale students (undergraduates and graduates) and recent graduates to participate in a full time internship at the Jewish Museum in New York City. Fellows will have the opportunity to join the curatorial team of the Jewish Museum and develop their knowledge of exhibition realization in a professional, supportive environment. Fellows will work virtually on projects within their individual departments. In addition to working remotely on exhibition projects in the Jewish Museum Curatorial Department, Blanksteen Fellows will spend a portion of their work hours participating in the Jewish Museum’s Virtual Summer Institute (VSI). The VSI runs from June 20 to August 12 and is an introduction to every aspect of work at the Jewish Museum happening both onsite and virtually.
