USC-Yale Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

The USC-Yale Postdoctoral Research Fellowship enables an outstanding postdoctoral scholar from any discipline to advance genocide research through the comparative analysis of testimonies by Holocaust survivors who gave interviews to both the Fortunoff Video Archive and the USC Shoah Foundation. Supported by the USC Libraries Collection Convergence Initiative, the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University, and the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research, the fellowship is bestowed by a committee comprised of representatives from both institutions.
