Fully Funded Summer Graduate Student Fellowship in USA

The Museum’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies is pleased to invite applications for Graduate Student Research Fellows from students in all academic disciplines. A fellowship opportunity designed for students accepted to or currently enrolled in a master’s degree program or in their first year of a PhD program but not for those who have completed more than one year of doctoral work.

The Graduate Student Research Fellowships are awarded 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.

Objective

The Graduate Student Research Fellowships are awarded 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.

In addition, Graduate Student Research Fellowships acquaint promising students with Holocaust studies by encouraging participation in the broad range of scholarly and publicly available educational programs offered by the Museum during the summer months. Graduate Student Research Fellows will work with assigned staff mentors who will advise students on their research goals. Awards are granted on a competitive basis.

Students are expected to participate in a weekly training seminar led by Museum staff, which introduces them to key subjects, essential tools, useful methods, and approaches as well as career opportunities in Holocaust research. Each assistant will meet with a staff mentor who will advise them on their projects and help guide their research in the Museum collections. Graduate Student Research Fellows are expected to familiarize themselves with relevant topics through assigned readings and to actively engage with Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies staff. The Mandel Center’s activities span both the fifth floor of the Washington Museum and the David and Fela Shapell Collections, Conservation and Research Center in Bowie, Maryland.
