Call for EHRI Fellowships in Holocaust Studies 2014

EHRI (European Holocaust Research Infrastructure) invites applications for its fellowship programme for 2014.

The EHRI fellowships are intended to support and stimulate Holocaust research by facilitating international access to key archives and collections related to the Holocaust. The fellowships intend to support researchers and younger scholars, especially PhD candidates with limited resources. The fellowships are funded by the European Union under the rules of FP7 transnational access and are thus open to applicants working at institutions established in FP7 member (the EU-28) and associate states. Candidates from Central and Eastern Europe are especially encouraged to apply. EHRI aims at creating an equal opportunity environment and thus does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnic or national origin, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation or disability.

The following EHRI partners are offering four fellowships each on a competitive basis:

  • Jewish Museum in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic
  • Institute of Contemporary History, Munich, Germany
  • Yad Vashem – The Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority, Jerusalem, Israel
  • The Shoah Memorial – Museum, Center for Contemporary Jewish Documentation, Paris, France
  • NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Amsterdam, The Netherlands will be offering two fellowships.

EHRI fellowships include a stipend for housing and living expenses as well as travel to and from the inviting institution.

Submissions must reach EHRI by 30 September 2013. Later submissions for this year will not be accepted. Decisions will be announced by December 2013.
