Overview

The Academy Scholars Program supports outstanding young scholars whose work combines disciplinary excellence in the social sciences or law with a command of the language and history or culture of countries or regions outside of the United States or Canada. Their scholarship may elucidate domestic, comparative, or transnational issues, past or present.

Academy Scholars are appointed for a two-year, in-residence, doctoral/postdoctoral fellowship at The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA. They receive substantial financial and research assistance to undertake sustained projects of research and/or acquire accessory training in their chosen fields and areas. The Senior Scholars, a distinguished group of senior Harvard University faculty members, act as mentors to the Academy Scholars to help them achieve their intellectual potential.

Eligibility
PhD candidates and recent PhDs (within three years of the 2019 deadline) may apply. Applications are welcome from qualified persons without regard to nationality, gender, or race.

Award
$31,000 annually for PhD candidates until receiving their degree, and $70,000 annually for postdoctorates. This stipend is supplemented by funding for conference and research travel, research assistants, and health insurance coverage. Some teaching is permitted but not required.

Deadline
October 1, 2019.
