Genevieve Geller Wyner Research Fellowship
The Genevieve Geller Wyner Research Fellowship at the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center (JHC) at New England Historic Genealogical Society provides an opportunity for a scholar to conduct research at the JHC’s archives. While the scholar's research project does not have to take place solely at the JHC archives, JHC collections should comprise a significant portion of the project’s source research. At the conclusion of the Fellowship period, the Fellow is asked to present a paper based on their research at a public event, the Genevieve Geller Wyner Annual Lecture, in Fall 2023.
One fellowship will be offered in 2023, in the amount of $2,500. Applications are due February 28, 2023. Research is to be conducted in Summer 2023.
To be eligible, scholars must hold a PhD at the time of application.
Applicants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the archival collections at the JHC. You can find a list of our finding aids, subject guides, and information about our Digital Library & Archives on our website at www.jewishheritagecenter.org. If you wish to speak to an archivist directly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-226-1245.
