Applications are now open for the Spring 2017 Auschwitz Jewish Center Program for Students Abroad. The program takes place from April 6-9, 2017; applications will be accepted until March 6.
The AJC, affiliated with the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York, has offered subsidized educational programs for students of all backgrounds since 2000. The PSA, established in 2010, is a long-weekend (Thursday-Sunday) academic program in Kraków that takes place during fall and spring semesters. Its curriculum includes tours of historical and contemporary Kraków, testimony, in-depth study visits to Auschwitz-Birkenau, and academic discussion.
Students of all backgrounds and nationalities who are studying in Europe, Israel, and the regions are encouraged to apply. Financial aid is available for the $375 program fee, covering meals, accommodation, entrance fees, and local transportation during the program. Please visit our website for a sample syllabus and eligibility FAQ; flyers are available for distribution upon request.
