Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International doctoral and postdoctoral scholars to conduct Holocaust-related research. Eligible research may include a variety of topics, including economic, political, religious, sociocultural, and legal aspects; the immediate historical context of the Holocaust; moral and ethical implications; and other relevant, related topics.

Through the Saul Kagan Fellowship in Advanced Shoah Studies, the Claims Conference supports Ph.D. and Post-doctoral candidates pursuing advanced study of Jews who were systematically targeted for destruction or persecution by the Nazis and their allies between 1933 and 1945 (and immediate post-war). 

Kagan Fellowships are awarded to outstanding candidates around the world who exhibit strong personal commitment to Holocaust research, demonstrate excellence in academic achievement, and possess the potential to provide outstanding professional leadership that will shape the future of Holocaust scholarship. Candidates can be studying the fields of History, Sociology, Jewish Studies, Political Science, Philosophy, Theology, Women’s Studies and others. Other than attending the summer week-long conference, there is no residency requirement.

In 2010, a component was initiated that has rapidly become a hallmark of the Kagan Fellowship program: an academic workshop week held annually in the summer, alternating between the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and Yad Vashem, in Jerusalem. At the summer workshop, each fellow presents current research and work in progress, and responds to questions from peers and veteran scholars. This opportunity allows Kagan Fellows to join the ranks of international presenters in prestigious, academically competitive settings and affords them substantial interaction with senior scholars in the field. All Fellows, including newly admitted, first and second year (renewed) Fellows are invited. The workshop includes ample time to spend at museum archives.
