Gandel Holocaust Studies Program

Written on the 9 June 2019 by Karen Farrow

Applications for scholarships are now open for the national and highly regarded "Gandel Holocaust Studies Program for Australian Educators" for 2019-2020. 
We are currently seeking applications from active and qualified secondary school teachers for the 2019-2020 intake. This is a fully funded graduate program and teachers of any subject or discipline can apply as long as they are teaching or intend teaching the subject of the Holocaust. We may also consider applications from those involved in teacher-training in Australia as long as the applicant intends to include Holocaust education in their curriculum.
The intensive 18 day program in Israel will run from 29 December 2019  15 January 2020.   The closing date for applications is COB Friday 21 June 2019. Late applications will not be accepted.


For further information, or to apply, please go to http://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/education/international_projects/australian_educators/index.asp
Over the past ten years over 300 teachers from a broad range of public and private schools across Australia have received this scholarship. Last year (for the third year running) we received over 120 applications for 35 available scholarships, a true testament to the strength and the quality of the program. 
Those invited for an interview must make themselves available on the following dates: Melbourne interviews: Monday 22nd & Tuesday 23rd July 2019; Sydney interviews: Wednesday 17th July 2019.
