Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International scholars for important writing and research on the subject of the Holocaust. Postdoctoral researchers, candidates working on their dissertations, and senior scholars who are affiliated with a research or academic institution are eligible to apply.

The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies is pleased to award fellowships to support significant research and writing about the Holocaust and related topics that would benefit from a period of residence at the Museum and access to its resources. A principal focus of the overall fellowship program is to ensure the development of a new generation of scholars, and those early in their careers are especially encouraged to apply.

A fellowship at the Mandel Center not only provides time to research and access to world-renowned archives but also an extensive network of people and institutions. From tailored onboarding meetings with Visiting Scholar Programs staff, to personal guidance through the Emerging Scholars Publications Program, to presentations by fellows and staff alike, fellows participate in an intimate environment designed to create the most fruitful research experience possible. Whether one is researching, writing, or participating in a program, fellows are able to work on their projects while being involved in a scholarly and close community.
