CFA: Global Russian Academy

Deadline: February 28, 2023

The war in Ukraine and ongoing crackdown in Russia threaten to plunge Russian social sciences and humanities into a new isolation and wipe out over three decades of internationalization and transnational exchange.

To address these challenges, the Russian Global Academy helps the Russian academic diaspora to self-organize and maintain a degree of solidarity and cohesion. We aim to preserve Russian scholarly communities by supporting digital professional ecosystems and offering flexible solutions in a transition period.

A DC-based consortium of three universities (GWU, Georgetown, and American University), the Academy delivers short-term non-residential fellowships to Russian scholars in emigration, provides support for conference travel, and assists in editing and publishing scholarly work.

CFA: Graduate Research Fellowships at the Center for Jewish History

Deadline: February 3, 2023

The Center for Jewish History offers ten-month fellowships to doctoral candidates to support original research using the collections of the Center’s Partners – American Jewish Historical Society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Preference is given to those candidates who draw on the archival and library resources of more than one Partner institution. Fellowships must run for 10 months, starting September 2023, and applicants should have completed all requirements (i.e., coursework, exams, dissertation proposal) for the doctoral degree except for the dissertation.

Fellows are encouraged to spend at least three days per week in residence in the Lillian Goldman Reading Room using the archival and library resources. For those who do not reside in commuting distance of New York, a hybrid model is possible; “hybrid” entails spending two months at the Center and working remotely for the remainder of the fellowship period if the majority of collection material is already digitized. Please note that the Center currently cannot commit to digitization of any undigitized collection materials during the fellowship period. In rare cases (e.g., war, natural disasters), we may be able to offer remote fellowships to those who cannot come to New York if their materials are available digitally on-line. Fellows must also participate in the Center for Jewish History Fellowship Seminar Program, attend monthly meetings of the fellowship program cohort, present a pre-circulated paper to be discussed at one of those monthly meetings, deliver a minimum of one lecture based on research conducted at CJH, and submit a report upon completion of the fellowship describing their experience as a Center Fellow. 

A total of four or five fellowships are available for the 2023-24 year: three Lapidus Fellowships and one or two Dr. Sophie Bookhalter Fellowships. These fellowships carry stipends of $30,000 for a period of 10 months.
