The EHRI fellowships are intended to support and stimulate Holocaust research by facilitating international access to key archives and collections related to the Holocaust. The fellowships intend to support researchers and younger scholars, especially PhD candidates with limited resources. The fellowships are funded by the European Union under the rules of FP7 transnational access and are thus open to applicants working at institutions established in FP7 member (the EU-28) and associate states. Candidates from Central and Eastern Europe are especially encouraged to apply. EHRI aims at creating an equal opportunity environment and thus does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, ethnic or national origin, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation or disability.

The following EHRI partners are offering fellowships; each will be awarded on a competitive basis:

  • Jewish Museum in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic: 2 fellowships
  • Institute of Contemporary History, Munich, Germany: 3 fellowships
  • NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Amsterdam, The Netherlands: 2 fellowships

EHRI fellowships include a stipend for housing and living expenses as well as travel to and from the inviting institution. Recipients are responsible for securing visas if necessary. Fellows will have access to the research infrastructure of the respective EHRI partner institution including access to a computer. The average length of the researcher’s stay is 4 weeks, but the fellow may extend the stay at his/her own expense and in accordance with the host institution and visa regulations. Fellows will be expected to spend 3 days a week at the host institution to conduct research on their research project. Research at other institutions in the vicinity of the respective host is encouraged.
