High school students sought for Holocaust history fellowship

Sign up for Weekday J and get the latest on what's happening in the Jewish Bay Area.

Five students selected from a pool of 11th and 12th graders will be chosen to study the Holocaust at a college level through the Manovill Holocaust History Fellowship.

The program is available through the Holocaust Center of Northern California.

Fellows will draw connections to other genocides and gain the tools to be advocates for building tolerance throughout the Bay Area. In addition, the students will connect with local Holocaust survivors and work in the Holocaust Center archives.

The fellowship offers flexibility for participants, allowing them to choose when they want to assist in the archives, conduct research and work on a thesis project. Upon completion of the fellowship, students will receive a $500 stipend and 60 hours toward their high school’s community service requirement.

Applications will be accepted through Nov. 12 and can be downloaded at www.hcnc.org. For more information, call (415) 777-9060 ext. 203 or contact [email protected].
