Applications are open for the Genevieve Geller Wyner Research Fellowship at the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center (JHC) at New England Historic Genealogical Society. Now in its second year, the fellowship, in the amount of $2,500, provides an opportunity for a scholar to conduct research at the JHC’s archives, whose collections focus on New England Jewish history. While the research project does not have to take place solely at the JHC archives, JHC collections should comprise a significant portion of the project’s source research. Research can take place any time between April and September 2022, and at the conclusion of the Fellowship period, the Fellow is asked to present a paper based on their research at a public event, the Genevieve Geller Wyner Annual Lecture.

Applications must be received by February 1, 2022. Applicants will be notified of their Fellowship status by March 24, 2022.

To be eligible, scholars must hold a PhD at the time of application.
