Fellowships to USA and Canada master's degree students or first-year Ph.D. students of all academic disciplines to research and write about the Holocaust. Funding is intended to help students share research findings, test ideas, debate interpretive or methodological processes, and develop frameworks for projects.

Proposed research projects should make use of the Museum's collections.

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.

In addition to English, applicants are encouraged, but not required, to have fluency in one or more of the following languages: German, Russian, Polish, Romanian, Hebrew, Yiddish, French, Dutch, Hungarian, Slovakian, Italian, and/or Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian.
