Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA and Canada master's degree students and first-year Ph.D. students of all academic disciplines for research and writing about the Holocaust. Fellows will participate in a 3-month residence that provides students with the opportunity to share research findings, test ideas, debate interpretive or methodological processes, and develop frameworks for projects. Please note that the Museum is currently open on a limited basis to scholars and staff; as the situation continues to change, quasi-virtual fellowships are expected to continue in the coming months.

Fellows are expected to participate in scheduled training seminars led by Museum staff, which introduce them to key subjects, essential tools, useful methods and approaches, as well as career opportunities in Holocaust research. In addition, Summer Graduate Student Research Fellowships encourage participation in scholarly and publicly available educational programs offered by the Museum during the summer months. Summer Graduate Student Research Fellows work with assigned staff mentors who will advise students on their project goals and help guide their research in the Museum collections.

The Mandel Center welcomes applications from students in all academic disciplines—including history, political science, literature, Jewish studies, psychology, sociology, geography, anthropology, arts and music, religious studies, and others. Students outside the field of history are encouraged to apply. Awards are granted on a competitive basis.
