Saul Kagan Claims Conference Fellowship in Advanced Shoah Studies

Saul Kagan Claims Conference Fellowship in Advanced Shoah Studies

The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) is offering a limited number of fellowships for Ph.D. candidates pursuing studies of the Holocaust.

The Kagan Fellowship Program of the Claims Conference supports graduate students who are completing dissertations in Holocaust Studies. The academic committee chooses a new cohort of 5 to 7 students annually.

Fellowships are awarded to outstanding candidates with a strong personal commitment to Shoah memory, who have demonstrated excellence in academic achievement, and who possess the potential to provide outstanding professional leadership that will shape the future of Shoah awareness.

The application deadline is January 25, 2012. Applicants are notified of decisions in May. Fellows gather in July for a workshop in a major international Holocaust research center.

See the Claims Conference website for application criteria.
