Grant Description
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.

Each fellow works with a staff mentor who advises them on their project goals and helps guide their research in the Museum's collections. Fellows take part in training seminars that introduce key subjects, essential tools, and useful methods and approaches in Holocaust research. They also attend the Museum's scholarly and publicly-available educational programs. 

The Mandel Center welcomes applications from graduate students of all relevant academic disciplines, including - but not limited to - history, political science, literature, Jewish studies, psychology, sociology, geography, anthropology, arts and music, and religious studies. Students working in disciplines other than history are especially encouraged to apply.  Awards are granted on a competitive basis.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
The Fellowships are designed for students accepted to or currently enrolled in a master’s degree program or in the first year of a PhD program at a college or university in North America.

Students who have completed more than one year of doctoral work will not be considered.

The Mandel Center is unable to provide visa assistance for non-US citizens.
