The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies is pleased to offer fellowships to support significant research and writing about the Holocaust and related topics for projects that will benefit from a period of residence at the Museum and access to its resources. We welcome proposals from all relevant academic disciplines includingbut not limited to—anthropology, archaeology, art history, comparative genocide studies, film studies, geography, history, Jewish studies, law, material culture, philosophy, political science, and psychology. Fellowships are designed for scholars at all levels of career, starting with PhD candidates (ABD). A principal focus of the fellowship program is to ensure the development of a new generation of scholars and those early in their careers are especially encouraged to apply. Faculty between appointments and scholars currently not affiliated with a university will also be considered. 

A fellowship at the Mandel Center provides scholars time to conduct research in the Museum's world-renowned archives, to write, and to participate in programs, all while working in an intimate scholarly environment designed for the most fruitful research experience possible. Fellows enjoy tailored onboarding meetings and consultations with Mandel Center staff, personal guidance through the Emerging Scholars Publications Program, and regular scholarly presentations and lectures by Mandel Center staff and fellows.
