The newly endowed Vivian G. Prins Fellowship Program will create residencies at the Museum for scholars, curators, visual artists, filmmakers, researchers, writers and holocaust educators who are emigrating to the United States and seeking permanent positions in North America.
"In creating and endowing The Vivian G. Prins Fellowship Program," says Michael S. Glickman, President and CEO of the Museum, "we will be able to offer unique opportunities to scholars and practitioners throughout the world, and at the same time position the Museum to stand peer-to-peer with other institutions that are elevating and defining scholarship, culture and education." He added, "Prins Fellows will work with Museum staff to cultivate the next generation of thought leaders, transform the presentation of scholarship, and imagine new modes of content distribution."
