Description

The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is pleased to announce a new hybrid research fellowship opportunity as a part of the Broadening Academia Initiative, a larger initiative designed to support the production of scholarship on the Holocaust by scholars who are untenured, contingent, or working outside of academia. Successful applicants will receive six (6) months of remote access to the Museum’s digitized archival collections and will be invited for one (1) week of in-person research at the David and Fela Shapell Family Collections, Conservation and Research Center, which houses the Museum’s world-class archival and artifact collections. Fellows will receive a $10,000 stipend plus a $3,000 travel allowance to cover one week of lodging, per diem, and RT transportation from the applicant’s home institution to the Shapell Center. The period of the fellowship will run from 1 October 2024 to 31 March 2025. 

Please note that this is a non-residential fellowship; rather, recipients will enjoy exclusive remote digital access to the Museum’s collections and will have up to one year from notification of their award to schedule and perform their in-person research week at the Shapell Center, for which they are responsible for securing all lodging and transportation. Where possible, fellows will be integrated into the Mandel Center’s existing programming and online collaboration opportunities and will be expected to present the results of their research to the Mandel Center by the conclusion of their fellowship. This program is made possible by the generous support of The Marcus Foundation.
