“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The EHRI fellowships are intended to support and stimulate Holocaust research by facilitating international access to key archives and collections related to the Holocaust as well as archival and digital humanities knowhow.
The fellowships are intended to support researchers, archivists, curators, and younger scholars, and especially PhD candidates with limited resources. The fellowships are funded by the European Union under the rules of transnational access and are thus principally open to applicants working at institutions established in member (the EU-28) and associate states. By EU regulations, participation by Fellows working at institutions in third countries is limited to 20% of the total amount of units of access provided by EHRI. It is not possible to apply for a Fellowship at an institution in the same country where one works. Candidates from Central and Eastern Europe are especially encouraged to apply.

EHRI is offering an open call, with evaluation cut-off dates every nine months, i.e. on 30 September 2015, 30 June 2016, 31 March 2017 and finally on 31 December 2017 – any proposal submitted after the evaluation cut-off date will automatically be included in the following evaluation round.
