Thank you for your interest in the CSYV Holocaust Scholarship Program.
Canadian Society for Yad Vashem awards scholarships to top educators from various schools across the country to participate in this program. In the first part of the program, participants attend the International seminar in Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Scholarship recipients have rare opportunities to learn from leading experts in Holocaust studies, discuss with educators from around the world, discover significant research and pedagogical materials in Holocaust education, hear first-hand experiences of the Shoah from Holocaust survivors. Back at their institutions, graduates of our program are enthusiastic to share with their students and colleagues what they have learned. They are now equipped to teach the next generation of Canadians about the Holocaust, thereby promoting the values of tolerance and inclusion in our country.
In 2019, Canadian Society for Yad Vashem awarded nine scholarships to top educators from various schools across the country.
