PhD Scholarship for researchers specialising in the Holocaust, anti-semitism or 20th-century genocides

Deadline: April 1, 2021

The Foundation for the Memory of Shoah (Paris, France) is accepting applications for the scholarship from PhD students who specialize in the history of the Holocaust.

The Foundation funds research on Holocaust-related topics, including the study of contemporary anti-Semitism and research on 20th-century genocides. The Foundation gives precedence to projects that open up new fields of knowledge and take an original approach, especially if it draws upon comparative history. It also attaches importance to European, international and interdisciplinary perspectives that combine historical, anthropological, sociological, legal, philosophical, psychological, or literary analyses. Projects involving the French aspects of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust and/or young researchers will receive particular attention.

The scholarship covers 12-month research (1550 €/per month) and may be renewed once. To be eligible applicants must be connected to an academic institution and must provide two letters of recommendation. Applications are to be sent to histoire@fondationshoah.org until 1 April 2021.
