Conny Kristel Fellowship Programme

EHRI Fellowship Network

The EHRI fellowships are intended to support and stimulate Holocaust research by facilitating international access to key archives and collections related to the Holocaust as well as archival and digital humanities knowhow. The fellowship programme aims to encourage researchers, archivists, curators, and younger scholars, especially PhD candidates with limited resources.

The last EHRI Fellowship Call closed at 31 December 2017. In 2018 the Conny Kristel Fellowship Programme was launched in honor of the first EHRI Project Director, Conny Kristel. As a historian, Dr Kristel was known for her publications about the history of the persecution of the Jews, and her work about the Netherlands during the First World War. The will to fathom the origins and consequences of war violence, persecution and victimhood formed the core of all her work. As project director of EHRI, she made a significant contribution to the internationalization and innovation of Holocaust research.

In 2020, EHRI will focus on the transformation from a project into a permanent entity. If the Covid-19 situation allows it, a new call for the Conny Kristel Fellowship Programme will go out before the end of 2020. New calls will be posted on this website and our social media pages (Facebook and Twitter @EHRIproject). You can also subscribe to our mailing list to receive the latest news.
