Ruth and Joseph Kremen Memorial Fellowship


The Ruth and Joseph Kremen Memorial Fellowship is dedicated to assist an undergraduate, graduate or post-graduate researcher in the fields of Eastern European Jewish arts, music and theater. There is no geographical restriction and researchers can apply the fellowship to work on Eastern European Jewish diasporas on any continent. This fellowship carries a stipend of $5,000 to defray expenses connected with research in the YIVO's arts, music and theater archival collections and library. The required period of research is two to three months, and a public lecture by the holder is also required. The 2021-22 YIVO Fellowship application period is currently closed. It will re-open for applications in September 2021.
