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

HEFNU will follow all Northwestern University COVID protocols in place at the time of the Institute.

Institute Description:

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 academic faculty and staff, full- or part-time Ph.D. students (particularly those in their final year of study), and educators at recognized institutions such as museums and archives.
