The Center awards fellowships to support significant research and writing about the Holocaust. Awards are granted on a competitive basis. The Center welcomes proposals from scholars in all relevant disciplines including history, political science, literature, Jewish studies, philosophy, religion, psychology, comparative genocide studies, law and others. Fellowships are awarded to candidates working on their dissertations (ABD), postdoctoral researchers, and senior scholars. Applicants must be affiliated with an academic and/or research institution when applying for a fellowship. Immediate post-docs and faculty between appointments will also be considered. The specific fellowship and the length of the award are at the discretion of the Center. Individual awards generally range up to nine months of residency. A minimum tenure of three consecutive months is required. Fellowships of five months or longer have proven most effective. Stipends range up to $3,500 per month. Residents of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area receive a modified stipend and term of residency at the Center. All awards include a stipend to offset the cost of direct travel to and from Washington, D.C., and visa assistance if necessary. Fellows are responsible for securing their own housing accommodations and health insurance. The Center does not provide support allowances for accompanying family members. The Museum provides work space and access to a computer, telephone, facsimile machine, and photocopier. Cost-sharing by home institutions or other relevant organizations is encouraged to extend the residency of the applicant at the Museum or to make possible additional research at other institutions in the Unites States and abroad. The deadline for fellowship applications is November of each year. Awards are announced the following April. The application can be found at the US Holocaust Museum’s Residential Research Fellowship webpage.
