For over 20 years, the Azrieli Scholarship Program at KlezKanada has brought emerging artists and scholars to study at our Laurentian Retreat. One-of-a-kind in the Jewish arts world, the program has allowed hundreds of young artists and scholars of all backgrounds to study Yiddish music and Jewish culture in a uniquely immersive environment.
This internationally renowned program offers students from all over the world an opportunity to study with many of today’s leading teachers of klezmer music and Yiddish song, Yiddish dance and theatre, and Jewish history, literature, and culture. The experience forges artistic mentorships, builds lasting friendships, and launches promising careers.
Often graduating to positions on KlezKanada’s faculty, our scholarship students carry their art and expertise worldwide, becoming innovative culture makers and teachers in the world of Yiddish culture and Jewish music.
A bridge between the Azrieli Scholarship Program and international acclaim, KlezKanada’s Fellowship Program brings bright young professional artists and scholars to KlezKanada’s performance and lecture programming. By Invitation Only.
We invite applications in any field, ages 16-35. Candidates must provide a small portfolio of their work to apply. Sur demande, le forumlaire est disponible aussi en français.
The deadline for scholarship applications is May 1st, 2019. Please note: while late applications will be accepted, they will be placed on a waiting list.
