The Center for Jewish History is currently accepting applications for
its dissertation research fellowships:

The Center for Jewish History offers fellowships to doctoral candidates
to support original research using the collections at the Center.
Preference is given to those candidates who draw on the library and
archival resources of more than one partner institution. Fellowships carry
a stipend of up to $15,000 for a period of one academic year. Applicants
for the fellowship must have completed all requirements (coursework, exams,
dissertation proposal) for the doctoral degree except for the dissertation.
It is required that each fellow spend a minimum of 3 days/week in residence
in the Lillian Goldman Reading Room using the archival and
library resources. Fellows must also participate in the Center for Jewish
History Fellowship Seminar Program and deliver a minimum of one lecture
based on research at the Center and the collections used. The fellowship is
open to qualified doctoral candidates from accredited domestic and
international institutions. All application material, including letters of
reference, must be received by February 4, 2013 for full consideration.
