Application Information

2023 Institute Dates will be posted soon

The Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University is pleased to invite applications for fellowships to participate in the 27th Annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

COVID Information:
At this time, HEFNU is planning to hold the Institute in-person. We follow Northwestern University Covid protocols in place at the time of the Institute. Requirements may include vaccinations or regular testing, and masking. If the situation deteriorates and we cannot hold the Institute in-person, we will move to a synchronous virtual format.

Institute Information:
Taught by experts in the field, HEFNU’s renowned Summer Institute is an intensive two-week residential course designed to provide participants the background needed to develop Holocaust courses at their home institutions. HEFNU welcomes full- or part-time PhD students (particularly those in their final year of study), full- or part-time academic faculty, and educators at recognized institutions such as museums and archives.

Fellowships cover the cost of room, board, and tuition. Fellowships do not cover travel expenses to and from Evanston or assigned books (most materials are made available for free through the Northwestern University Library).

This year's competition is not yet open.
