Summer Graduate Student Research Fellows work with assigned staff mentors, who will advise scholars on their project goals and help guide their research in the Museum collections. Occasional seminars are also planned in order to introduce fellows to key subjects, essential tools, and useful methods and approaches, as well as career opportunities in Holocaust research.
Fellows are expected to participate in scheduled training seminars led by Museum staff, which introduce them to key subjects, essential tools, useful methods and approaches, as well as career opportunities in Holocaust research.
