Fellowships at the KHC


Each semester, the Kupferberg Holocaust Center offers three unique fellowship opportunities for QCC students. In the past, the topics revolved around the Holocaust, Hate Crimes, and Asian Social Justice. The KHC would like to announce the fellowship programs being offered in the Spring 2018 semester, allowing student to gain not only knowledge about various topics but leadership skills. Upon completion of the program, the student will receive a stipend and will become eligible to apply for the opportunity to participate in an advanced leadership institute.


KHC/CERRU Undoing Bias Fellowship 

The Undoing Bias fellowship seeks to introduce students to the systems of bias that have historically separated and divided people and produced inequality. Students will learn how to confront the challenges of a diverse world while gaining more self-awareness to undo personal bias through shared language and understanding of inequality. KHC/CERRU Fellows enter a semester-long program in which they learn how to engage diversity using dialogue. Please be mindful that a supplemental application must be submitted in addition to other requested materials.


Project Based Fellowships                                                                                   

The KHC is looking for students interested in a unique learning opportunity to get hands-on experience working at a nonprofit committed to human rights. With many ongoing projects at the Center, interns will have the chance to work in their area of interest. Project areas include: archival research, exhibition development, public programming, library science, social media/marketing, and administration. Please indicate your area of interest in your application. Students will commit to 30 hours of service, and will meet once monthly as a group to share their projects.


Students must commit to a certain amount of project hours to complete the tasks required of them. The fellowships will meet weekly over the course of the semester and offer a stipend of $360 upon successful completion of the project. QCC students may be eligible to earn elective and honors credits with additional responsibilities.
