The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives is accepting applications to its Fellowship Program for the 2007-2008 academic year. The Marcus Center's Fellowship Program provides recipients with month long fellowships for research and writing at The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives, located on the Cincinnati campus of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. Fellowship stipends will be sufficient to cover transportation and living expenses while in residence in Cincinnati. Applicants for the Marcus Center Fellowship program must be conducting serious research in some area relating to the history of North American Jewry. Typically, Marcus Center Fellowships will be awarded to post-doctoral candidates, Ph.D. candidates who are completing dissertations, and senior or independent scholars.
The application deadline is March 18, 2007. Full information on the program together with an application form are available at the Marcus Center's website (www.americanjewisharchives.org/aja/programs) or by contacting Mr. Kevin Proffitt, Director of the Fellowship Program, at the address below.
