Location:   Massachusetts, United States
Position:   Post-doctoral and Pre-doctoral Scholars
The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies
The Harvard Academy Scholars Program
2014-2015

The Academy Scholars Program identifies and supports outstanding scholars 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 community of individuals with resourcefulness, initiative, curiosity, and originality, whose work in non-Western cultures or regions shows promise as a foundation for
exceptional careers in major universities or international institutions.  Harvard Academy Scholarships are open only to recent PhD (or comparable professional school degree) recipients and doctoral candidates.  Those still pursuing a PhD should have completed their routine training and be well along in the writing of their theses before applying to become Academy Scholars; those in possession of a PhD longer than 3 years at the time of application are ineligible.

Academy Scholars are appointed for 2 years by the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies and are provided time, guidance, and access to Harvard University facilities.  They receive substantial financial and research assistance to undertake sustained projects of research and/or acquire accessory training in their chosen fields and areas.  Some teaching is permitted but not required.  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.

Post-doctoral Academy Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $65,000, and pre-doctoral Academy Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $31,000.  Applications for the 2014-2015 class of Academy
Scholars are due by October 1, 2013.  
Finalist interviews will take place in Cambridge on December 5.  Notification of Scholarships will be made in January, 2014.  For complete information on how to apply
