The Pearlstine/Lipov Center for Southern Jewish Culture at the College of Charleston invites applications for its research fellowship program. Fellowship stipends will amount to $500/week and, depending on availability, may include free housing. The deadline for those hoping to visit during the academic school year is August 1.
Applicants must be working on projects of scholarship, public history, or artistic production that would benefit from research in Charleston. Preference will be given to those coming from out of state and those using materials from the Jewish Heritage Collection at the College’s Addlestone Library. Recipients may include senior scholars, graduate students, and independent scholars, as well as journalists, filmmakers, artists, and exhibition curators.
Applicants must submit a cover letter explaining their research needs in Charleston and the proposed length of the fellowship period; a curriculum vitae; and a 2-page proposal that describes the project. Applications should be emailed to Shari Rabin, director of the Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a second deadline of March 1 for those hoping to visit during the summer.
