EHRI Fellwoships for Holocaust Research
- Fully Funded
- 31 March 2017
The EHRI fellowships are intended to support and stimulate Holocaust research by facilitating international access to key archives and collections related to the Holocaust as well as archival and digital humanities knowhow. The fellowships intend to support researchers, archivists, curators, and younger scholars, especially PhD candidates with limited resources.
The fellowships are funded by the European Union under the rules of transnational access and are thus principally open to applicants working at institutions established in member (the EU-28) and associate states. By EU regulations, participation by Fellows working at institutions in third countries is limited to 20% of the total amount of units of access provided by EHRI. It is not possible to apply for a Fellowship at an institution in the same country where one works. 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.
EHRI is offering Fellowships at one or more of the following EHRI partner institutions; each will be awarded on a competitive basis.
EHRI fellowships include a stipend for housing and living expenses as well as travel to and from the inviting institution. These stipends follow the practices of the inviting institution or institutions. Recipients are responsible for securing visas if necessary. Fellows will have access to the research infrastructure of the respective EHRI partner institution including access to a computer. The duration applicants can apply for is flexible – the minimum unit for stays is one week, while very long stays over 4-6 weeks will remain exceptional. The fellow may extend the stay at his/her own expense and in accordance with the host institution and visa regulations. Fellows will be expected to spend 3 days a week at the host institution to conduct research on their research project. Research at other institutions in the vicinity of the respective host is encouraged. At the end of the stay, a report will be required by each EHRI Fellow on the research conducted during the stay(s).
