Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of $22,500 to USA, Canada, and International doctoral candidates to engage in research related to Jewish history and Jewish studies at the funding source's resource center in New York City. This ten-month fellowship program provides doctoral candidates with the opportunity to utilize the collections of the Jewish History Center’s partners: American Jewish Historical Society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.

Preference is given to those candidates who draw on the library and archival resources of more than one of the Center's above-listed partner institutions.

During the residency, it is required that each fellow spend a minimum of three days per week in residence in the Lillian Goldman Reading Room using the archival and library resources. Fellows must also participate in the Center for Jewish History Fellowship Seminar Program, attend bi-weekly meetings of the fellowship program cohort, deliver a minimum of one lecture based on research conducted at Center, and submit a report upon completion of the Fellowship describing her/his experience as a Center Fellow.

While in residence at the Center, fellows are invited to participate in a vibrant academic community that engages students and scholars from North America, Europe, and Israel. Each year a New York-based scholar serves as the Academic Advisor, directing monthly seminars and offering academic guidance to early career fellows. Comprised of sixteen leading scholars in Jewish Studies, the Center’s Academic Advisory Council provides oversight and offers an additional professional resource to fellows. Fellows are additionally invited to take part in regularly scheduled Scholars Working Groups that bring together expert faculty to discuss new Jewish Studies research.

Fellows are encouraged to share their work with a wider audience through public programs at the Center. Lectures, discussions, symposia/conferences, film screenings, concerts, and other programs provide a creative platform for fellows to draw attention to their research in the partner collections and convey their knowledge to the public.
