Greenberg Research Fellowship

Katz Research Fellowship in Genocide Studies

Breslauer, Rutman, and Anderson Research Fellowship


Deadline: December 15, 2017

The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research invites proposals for its three research fellowships for advanced-standing PhD candidates: the 2018-2019 Margee and Douglas Greenberg Research Fellowship; the 2018-2019 Robert J. Katz Research Fellowship in Genocide Studies; and the 2018-2019 Breslauer, Rutman, and Anderson Research Fellowship.

Each fellowship provides $4,000 support and will be awarded to an outstanding advanced-standing PhD candidate from any discipline for dissertation research focused on testimony from the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive and other USC resources. The recipient will be required to spend one month in residence at the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research during the 2018-2019 academic year. Award decisions for each fellowship will be based on the originality of the research proposal and its potential to advance research with testimonies in the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive or other unique genocide research resources at USC. Each fellow will be expected to provide the Center with fresh perspectives, to play a role in Center activities, and to give a public talk during the stay. The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research distinguishes itself from other Holocaust and Genocide institutes by offering access to unique research resources and by focusing its research efforts on the interdisciplinary study of currently under-researched areas.
