From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: The deadline to submit a project proposal for the fellowship competition at the Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is November 30, 2014.
The Mandel Center awards fellowships-in-residence to candidates working on their dissertations, postdoctoral researchers, and senior scholars. Fellowships are open to scholars in all relevant academic disciplines, including history, political science, literature, Jewish studies, philosophy, religion, sociology, anthropology, comparative genocide studies, and law. Applicants must be affiliated with an academic and/or research institution when applying for a fellowship.
All applicants must submit:
- An online application form
- A project proposal, in PDF format, not to exceed five single-spaced pages
- A curriculum vitae summary, in PDF format, not to exceed four single-spaced pages
- Two signed letters of recommendation that speak to the significance of the proposed project and the applicant’s ability to carry it out. Members of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council’s Academic Committee may not write letters of recommendation. Letters of recommendation must be received before November 30, 2014, and come directly from the references, not from the applicant. Directions on how to submit letters of recommendation can be found within the online application form.
The fellowship offers stipends of up to $3,500 for each month of the residency. Fellowships must last at least three months, but generally do not exceed eight months.
More information about fellowship, application procedures, stipend restrictions, and the award process can be found at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website.
