For four years running, the National Authority for Yiddish Culture has been granting fellowships to students at Israeli universities whose M.A., Ph.D. or post-doctoral research focuses on Yiddish language and culture. Once complete, the Authority publishes their theses and dissertations.

Most recently, the Authority supported the doctoral dissertation of Esti Nissim at Tel Aviv University. The subject is: "Interrelations of space, self-consciousness and sex in Avrom Goldfaden's plays."

The dissertation has an appendix: the full Yiddish text of Goldfaden's play, "Ben ami, oder der zun fun mayn folk" ("The Son of my People.")
