Application for the USHMM Summer Graduate Student Research International Fellowship in USA – 2022/2023. Entry is now open at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in USA.
The aim of the fellowship is to support significant research and writing about the Holocaust and to 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. The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies will provide a stipend of $3,000/month as well as an allowance to offset the cost of direct, economy-class travel to and from Washington, DC. Local awardees will not receive a travel allowance.
