Summer Graduate Student Research Fellowships
The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies is pleased to offer annual Summer Graduate Research Fellowships, designed for students accepted to or currently enrolled in a master’s degree program or in their first year of a PhD program at a North American college or university. Students who have completed more than one year of doctoral work, or who are enrolled in a program at a foreign institution, will not be considered.
Summer Graduate Student Research Fellowships support significant research and writing about the Holocaust and encourage MA-level and first-year PhD students to test ideas, share research findings, debate methodological or interruptive processes, and develop frameworks for their projects. 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.
