2008-2009 FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AT THE
CENTER FOR ADVANCED HOLOCAUST STUDIES
The Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum awards fellowships to support significant research and writing about the Holocaust. Awards are granted on a competitive basis. The Center welcomes proposals from scholars in all relevant academic disciplines, including history, political science, literature, Jewish studies, philosophy, religion, psychology, comparative genocide studies, law, and others.
Fellowships are awarded to candidates working on their dissertations (ABD), postdoctoral researchers, and senior scholars. Applicants must be affiliated with an academic and/or research institution. Immediate post-docs and faculty between appointments will also be considered.
The specific fellowship and the length of the award are at the Center’s discretion. Individual awards generally range up to nine months of residency; a minimum of three consecutive months is required. Fellowships of five months or longer have proven most effective. Stipends range up to $3,000 per month. Residents of the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area receive a modified stipend and term of residency.
