The Saul Kagan Claims Conference Fellowship for Advanced Shoah Studies
aims to strengthen Shoah studies and Holocaust memory throughout the
world. Our mission is to support the advanced study of the fate of Jews
who were systematically targeted for destruction or persecution by the
Nazis and their allies between 1933 and 1945.
Studies covered by
the Fellowship can include the immediate historical context in which
the Holocaust took place and encompass political, economic, legal,
religious and socio-cultural aspects, as well as ethical and moral
implications. The Fellowship also supports awardees in learning
languages necessary to studying original Holocaust-related documents,
such as languages of the former Soviet Union and certain European
countries. Ph.D. candidates can be pursuing a degree in a variety of
fields, including History, Sociology, Philosophy, Judaic Studies,
Political Science, Government, Women’s Studies and other fields.
Candidates focusing on the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust will
also be considered.
Fellowships are awarded to outstanding
candidates around the world who have a strong personal commitment to
Shoah memory, who have demonstrated excellence in academic achievement,
and who possess the potential to provide outstanding professional
leadership that will shape the future of Holocaust awareness and
As part of the program, Kagan Fellows are invited to
attend an all-expenses paid annual 5-day summer workshop alternately
hosted at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem in
Jerusalem. Fellows are invited to present their research to and network
with leading scholars and peers in Holocaust history.
