The Harvard Academy for international and area studies invites applications to its 2022/2023 postdoctoral fellowship program.
The Academy Scholars Program seeks out and supports outstanding early-career scholars whose work combines disciplinary excellence in the social sciences (including law) with a command of the language, history, or culture of countries or regions other than the United States or Canada. Their research may shed light on domestic, comparative, or transnational issues, both past, and present.
The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies is dedicated to increasing our knowledge of the culture, history, and institutions of the world’s major regions and countries. The Harvard Academy was founded in 1986 on the initiative of Faculty of Arts and Sciences Dean Henry Rosovsky, who served as its Chairman until 1996 when Samuel P. Huntington succeeded him.
The Harvard Academy also undertakes research projects, supports faculty research, organizes seminars and conferences, and sponsors publications on international themes.
The Harvard Academy for international and area studies covers $70,000 to cater for expenses all throughout the program.
The competition for these awards is open to applicants who recently got their Ph.D. (or comparable professional school degree) recipients and doctoral candidates in the social sciences or law.
While candidates’ academic excellence is the primary consideration, the Selection Panels will take into account factors such as research ability and potential, communication and interpersonal skills as well as leadership abilities.
Applications for the Harvard Academy fellowship should include the following items
- Curriculum Vitae (CV),
- Cover Letter,
- Research Proposal, and
- A PhD Program Transcript,
- Three letters of Recommendation.
Application Deadline: October 1, 2021.
