Open to CU Boulder Graduate Students

The Program in Jewish Studies and the Department of History annually award the History – Jewish Studies Archive 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 but to be allocated however works best around the student’s and the supervisor’s schedules) in the CU Innovations in Jewish Life Collections. The Fellow will work with librarians and archivists on various projects such as researching, designing, and curating exhibits, digital humanities initiatives, and other programs based on archival materials. For students with interests in American history or Jewish Studies, a portion of the required 130 hours may also be devoted to original research that draws on archival materials. For more information about the collections, please visit the Innovations in Jewish Life Collections.

Graduate students from relevant disciplines (History or Jewish Studies) are welcome to apply; however, preference will be given to candidates with experience and/or interest in Jewish Studies, 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.
