  • Scholarship Description
  • This award honors the memory of Gideon Klein, brilliant pianist and composer, who was imprisoned in Terezin and other concentration camps until his death in 1945. While in Terezin, Klein inspired other musicians to compose and share their music with others in most difficult circumstances. The award was established in 1997 by Prof. Bill Giessen in memory of his mother, Gustel Cormann Giessen.

    During the Holocaust, many musicians and other artists were persecuted by the Nazis, some because they were Jewish, others because of the content of their art. We invite you to apply for the Gideon Klein Award. The Award is open to students in any major. The Gideon Klein Scholar will either create an original work, prepare a performance, or do research. At the end of the academic year, he/she will offer a public presentation at Northeastern University and archive the project on the Jewish studies website. Students at Northeastern, Hebrew College, and the New England Conservatory are eligible to apply. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
