USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research is currently accepting applications for nearly every one of its research and teaching fellowships.

There are fellowships for all levels of scholars, from undergraduates to faculty.

University of Southern California undergraduates are invited to apply for the DEFY Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship, due March 31, 2017. The fellowship provides support for one or more students to conduct research in the Visual History Archive in residence at USC Shoah Foundation for their honors thesis or other project.

USC graduate students and faculty can apply for the Summer Research Fellowship; applications are due March 31, 2017. Summer Research Fellowships provide support for USC graduate students and USC faculty doing research focused on the Visual History Archive and/or other unique USC resources and collections during the summer. The fellowship is open to USC faculty and USC graduate students of all disciplines.

Three fellowships are geared toward advanced standing PhD candidates from any university. The Greenberg Research Fellowship, Katz Research Fellowship in Genocide Studies and Breslauer, Rutman and Anderson Research Fellowship each enable PhD students to spend up to a month in residence at USC Shoah Foundation to conduct research for their dissertations. The deadline to apply for each fellowship is February 15, 2017.

PhD candidates are also invited to apply for the Third Annual Workshop for Advanced PhD Candidates from North American Universities and Israel Working on the Holocaust, hosted by the Center and Yad Vashem and held at Yad Vashem in Israel in June 2017. This workshop intends to bring together graduate students from the United States, Canada, and Israel to exchange ideas and share their research results on the Holocaust, including its antecedents and aftermath. The deadline to apply is March 15, 2017.

The Center Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, due February 15, 2017, is awarded to one outstanding postdoctoral scholar from any discipline who will advance digital genocide research through the use of the Visual History Archive. The Center welcomes proposals from researchers who use innovative digital methodologies to approach the testimonies of the Visual History Archive.

Faculty who wish to incorporate the VHA into the courses they teach are welcome to apply to the International Teaching Fellowship and (for Texas A&M University faculty only) the A.I. and Manet Schepps Teaching Fellow Program. These fellowships enable faculty to come to USC Shoah Foundation for a short visit to consult with Center staff and search the VHA for testimonies they can incorporate into their courses. Both applications are due March 31, 2017.
