The Posen Family Foundation has announced a call for applications for the sixth cohort of Posen Society of Fellows, a program that supports doctoral students in modern Jewish history and culture.
Designed to provide early-career support, the two-year fellowships include opportunities to participate in public engagement events and attend annual gatherings of noted academics and writers. All applicants should have completed their comprehensive exams, have their dissertation prospectus approved before January 15, 2018, and have approximately two years left before completion of the dissertation.
The foundation is particularly interested in projects that would speak to a wider public beyond the academy. Applications should include an explanation for how the dissertation addresses issues of relevance to such an audience.
Each fellow will receive a total of $40,000 over two years.
Eligible scholars should be completing a doctoral dissertation on a topic related to modern Jewish history or culture. Fellowships are open to doctoral students and writers of all religions and nationalities.
