The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies Scholars Program

Pre- and Post-doctoral Fellowships
The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies
Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University

The Harvard Academy Scholars Program was established to identify and support outstanding scholars (recent PhDs and advanced graduate students) who are at the start of their careers whose work combines disciplinary excellence in the social sciences (including history and law) with a command of the language, history or culture of non-Western countries or regions. Their scholarship may elucidate domestic, comparative, or transnational issues, past or present.

The Academy Scholars are a select group of individuals who show promise of becoming leading scholars at major universities or international institutions. They are appointed and supported by the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies and are provided opportunities for advanced work at Harvard University.

Those selected as Academy Scholars are given time, guidance, access to Harvard facilities, and substantial financial assistance as they work for two years conducting either post-doctoral or final-stage dissertation research in their chosen fields or areas. Some teaching is permitted but not required. The Senior Scholars, a distinguished group of senior Harvard faculty members, act as mentors to the Academy Scholars to help them achieve their intellectual potential.
