The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) welcomes applications from exceptionally well-qualified holders of the Bachelor’s or Master’s degree for appointment as Belofsky Graduate Fellows in UTD’s School of Arts and Humanities. Application from students pursuing the study of the Holocaust or modern Jewish culture or comparative perspectives on the American and European Jewish experience are particularly welcomed. The School of Arts and Humanities offers Ph.D. degrees in Aesthetic Studies, History of Ideas, and Literary Studies, with each of them emphasizing interdisciplinary study and research. The Holocaust Studies Program in the School of Arts and Humanities is a multi-faceted curriculum, augmented and supported by the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies, the Selwyn Belofsky Fellowship in Holocaust Studies, the Burton C. Einspruch Holocaust Lecture Series, the Hillel Feinberg Chair of Holocaust Studies, the Arnold A. Jaffe Holocaust Book Collection, the Leah and Paul Lewis Chair of Holocaust Studies, and the Rabin Professorship. Belofsky Fellows will have the opportunity to pursue doctoral studies under the supervision of Drs. Zsuzsanna Ozsvath, Nils Roemer, or David Patterson.
Belofsky Fellows receive 12-month stipends of $20,000 along with complete remission of all UTD tuition and fees, subject to satisfactory progress toward the Ph.D. degree, for up to five years for candidates holding a Bachelor’s Degree, and four years for those with Master’s Degree. Fellows have no assigned teaching responsibilities or other work assignments, but may petition to teach classes in the latter years of their graduate study.
