Fellowships

Our fellowship programs are designed to engage leading practitioners to resolve specific issues in partner communities around the world. As virtual fellowships, they allow fellows to remain fully engaged with their home institutions and centers while working to meet the needs of real communities around the world.

We have filled all fellowship positions for 2021 but are happy to discuss future work. Please reach out to our CEO, Marcus Steiner, with questions.

Holocaust Education

A fellowship dedicated to transforming how Holocaust Education functions. Fellows may engage with projects that expand the scope of Holocaust Education, translate its lessons into modern contexts, or delve into little-studied aspects of the Holocaust and its lessons. The ultimate goal of the Holocaust Education Fellowship is to utilize the lessons, stories, and history of the world’s most-studied genocide and apply them to modern educational practices thereby creating a better-informed populace that can recognize the signs and work against the rise of violence. 

Democracy & Human Rights

A fellowship dedicated to furthering the development of democratic institutions, informed participation in government, and broader human rights work in partner communities. Fellows may work to enhance civic education, create infrastructure to empower civic engagement, or target specific human rights issues within partner communities. The ultimate goal of the DHR Fellowship is to create targeted solutions within partner communities to address the roots of civic, social, and justicial inequality. 

Mass Atrocity Prevention

A fellowship dedicated to halting the development of mass atrocities in high-risk areas. Fellows may work with partner communities to facilitate dialogue between conflicting groups, work to educate communities on the root causes of violence, or even aid post-conflict communities in exercises of memory. As the broadest Fellowship field, a MAP Fellow’s work may not be confined to a single community but could instead seek to work with entire nations. The ultimate goal of the MAP Fellowship is to engage with high-risk communities to find peaceful solutions to situations that often result in mass violence.

STEM Education

A fellowship dedicated to utilizing STEM curricula and its associated skills to empower partner communities. STEM Fellows may work to further STEM education in partner communities or to develop solutions to issues within partner communities related to STEM fields. STEM work could consist of teaching computer science classes with the goal of giving community members the skills to elevate themselves out of poverty or working with partner communities to build and maintain more robust and efficient irrigation systems. The ultimate goal of the STEM Fellowship is to empower partner communities through practical STEM education and through working with partner communities to create sustainable solutions to targeted issues.
