2012–13 CENTER FELLOWSHIP COMPETITION

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies is now accepting applications for the 2012-13 fellowship competition

The Center awards fellowships to candidates working on their dissertations (ABD), postdoctoral researchers, and senior scholars. Applicants must be affiliated with an academic and/or research institution; the Center will also consider immediate post-docs and faculty between appointments.

The specific fellowship and the length of the award are at the Center’s discretion. Individual awards generally range up to nine months of residency; a minimum of three consecutive months is required. Fellowships of five months or longer have proven most effective. Stipends range up to $3,500 per month for the purpose of defraying local housing and other miscellaneous living expenses. Residents of the Washington, DC–metropolitan area receive a reduced stipend of $1,750 per month.

All applications and supporting materials must be submitted electronically and in English by February 17, 2012. The Center will announce its decisions in May 2012.
