Open to CU Boulder Graduate Students

The Center for Humanities and the Arts and the Program in Jewish Studies annually award the CHA – Jewish Studies Post-Holocaust American Judaism Summer Fellowship, which provides a $4,000 fellowship to a CU Boulder graduate student for the summer. The Fellowship requires 130 hours of work over the summer (or approximately 13 hours per week to be allocated in whatever way works best for the student’s and supervisor’s schedules) in the CU Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections. The Fellow will work with librarians and archivists on projects such as researching, designing, and curating exhibits, digital humanities initiatives, and other programs based on archival materials. For students interested in American history or Jewish Studies, a portion of the required 130 hours may also be devoted to original research drawing on archival materials. For more information about the collections, please visit the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections page.

CU graduate students from all disciplines in the arts and humanities are welcome to apply; preference will be given to candidates with experience and/or interest in Jewish Studies, European or American history and culture, and/or archival work. Competency in foreign languages would be useful and should be mentioned in an application, although this is not a prerequisite for application.

Submission Guidelines:

Applications should be submitted through CU Boulder's Scholarship Application in Buff Portal by the deadline and include the following information:

  • CV
