The Claims Conference Saul Kagan Fellowship in Advanced Shoah Studies aims to strengthen Holocaust studies and Shoah 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, as well as immediate post-war events.  

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. 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. 

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 scholarship.

As part of the program, Kagan Fellows are required to attend an all-expenses-paid, annual 4-5 day summer workshop alternately hosted at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem where they present their research to and network with leading scholars and peers at the end of each funding year.
