The Blanksteen Curatorial Fellowship

Summer 2024 Dates TBD

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 on projects within their individual departments. In addition to working 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 to August and is an introduction to every aspect of work at the Jewish Museum happening both onsite and virtually. Contact Aviva Green with questions.

These grants are used to support on-campus dramatic, musical, dance, video or film productions, literary publications, and exhibitions with Jewish content.
