CFP: Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies Fellowship Competition

The Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is now accepting applications for the 2011-2012 fellowship competition. The Center awards fellowships to support significant research and writing about the Holocaust and welcomes proposals from scholars in all relevant 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 $3,500 per month for the purpose of defraying local housing and other miscellaneous living expenses. Residents of the Washington, DC-metropolitan area receive a reduced stipend of $1,750 per month.

All applications must be submitted in English via an online application process. For complete fellowship competition guidelines and/or to submit an application, please go to www.ushmm.org/research/center/fellowship.

Fellowship applications and supporting materials must be received by November 30, 2010. Decisions will be announced in April 2011. Please e-mail inquiries to visitingscholars@ushmm.org or call 202.314.7802.
