Graduate/Faculty Summer Research Fellowships 2017

Deadline: March 31, 2017

The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research invites research proposals from USC faculty members and graduate students for its Summer 2017 Research Fellowships.

The fellowships provide $3,000 support for USC faculty and USC graduate students doing research focused on the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive and/or other unique USC resources and collections during the summer of 2017. The fellowship is open to USC faculty and USC graduate students of all disciplines. A limited number of fellowships are available.

Award decisions for this fellowship will be based on the originality of the research proposal and the centrality of USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive and/or other relevant USC resources to the research project.

USC is the home of internationally unique and growing research resources, which include the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive, a collection of over 54,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides, including the Rwandan, Armenian, Guatemalan, and Cambodian genocides and the Nanjing Massacre in China; a Holocaust and genocide studies collection at Doheny Memorial Library with over 20,000 primary and secondary sources, including the Nuremberg Trials papers and a class action lawsuit against New York Life regarding the Armenian genocide; and a Special Collection containing private papers of German and Austrian Jewish emigrants from the Third Reich.

Summer Research Fellows will be expected to spend four weeks in residence at the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research during the summer of 2017, to play a role in the activities of the Center, and to give a public presentation based on their work and findings during the following academic year.

To submit an application, please send a cover letter, current CV, and research proposal, including a project outline and a description of methodology, by March 31, 2017 to cagr@usc.edu. Graduate students should include a letter of recommendation from a faculty advisor.
