CfA: Two 2014 Fellowships at the Center for Holocaust Studies at the Institute of Contemporary History

The Center for Holocaust Studies at the Institute of Contemporary History will be offering two grants for research stays of up to four months each at the Center in Munich during 2014. 

The fellowships are designed to support and foster international Holocaust research. The program is aimed at established as well as younger researchers. As we are interested in a high degree of international cooperation, applications from Europe as well as from all over the world are welcome. A topic within the field of Holocaust
Studies is required in order to be eligible for one of the fellowships.

Applicants should explain their interest in a stay at the Center and make clear, which holdings of the Archives of the Institute of Contemporary History and potentially other German archives are relevant to them. The fellows are expected to partake actively in the events and research discussions of the Center as well as present their own topic

The Center will offer a workspace with a PC and telephone as well as access to a photocopier. The stipend level depends on the prior academic degrees of the recipients (2000 Euro per month for doctoral students and up to 3500 Euro for post-docs). Additionally non-recurring travel to and from Munich will be covered. The fellows are obliged to take care of any necessary visas, housing and health insurance themselves at an appropriate time. 


Applications - in German or English - have to reach us by 15 December
2013 and contain the following materials: 

  • a motivational letter
  • a project proposal (max. 5 pages)
  • a curriculum vitae with publication list
  • two letters of recommendation

Queries and applications should be sent to
