Fellowships
The Center’s fellowships vary in scope and length. They are awarded to doctoral candidates, USC undergraduate and graduate students, USC faculty, faculty at the Visual History Archive's access points, and senior scholars who use the Visual History Archive or other genocide-related resources at USC for innovative research projects across academic disciplines. Selected projects advance understanding of the cultural and societal dynamics that precipitate or deter genocide, offering knowledge that has practical application and benefit.
