Grant Description
Fellowships to USA undergraduate and master's degree students for Holocaust-related research projects that utilize digital technology. Selected fellows will conduct studies at the funding source institution supervised by a mentor and will participate in seminars and workshops exploring issues relevant to Holocaust scholarship. Students pursuing degrees across the range of academic disciplines are eligible to participate in the 9-month residency at the host museum. The purpose of the program is to expand the application of digital techniques across the institution and the field of Holocaust and Genocide studies.

The Digital Humanities Associate Fellowship (DHAF) recognizes the increasing importance and use of Digital Humanities (DH) in Holocaust research and teaching and supports its practices, possibilities, and applications for the field and the Museum. This (relatively) young academic specialty seeks to apply the wealth of new digital techniques and technologies to the problems of humanities research and education.

While at the Museum, the Digital Humanities Associate Fellows will develop and conduct independent research projects under the supervision of a Museum mentor, interact with staff and visiting scholars in residence, and audit special summer seminars and research workshops that explore some of the most challenging questions still to be addressed by Holocaust scholarship. Activities span the Museum’s DC locations and the David and Fela Shapell Family Collections, Conservation, and Research Center in suburban Maryland.
