Harvard Academy Scholars Program 2024
Become a Harvard Academy Scholar and get substantial financial and research support to undertake robust research projects and skill development in your chosen fields and areas.
The scholars are appointed for a two-year in-residence postdoctoral fellowship at The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies, Harvard University.
Join dinners, seminars, and informal gatherings where you can meet and collaborate with like-minded peers who share your passion for innovative interdisciplinary approaches to work.
You will receive mentorship from esteemed Harvard Academy Senior Scholars. This select group of faculty members not only serves as a selection committee but actively engages in Harvard Academy events, wholeheartedly dedicated to supporting you as you strive to reach your full potential.
How does the Harvard Academy Scholars Program work
Each year, five or six Academy Scholars are named for two-year in-residence appointments with an annual stipend of $75,000, with the two years to be completed within a three-year window.
Year 1 of the fellowship must be taken up no later than the fall immediately following the postdoctoral fellowship offer. Delays or deferrals at the start of Year 1 are not permitted.
Between Years 1 and 2, Academy Scholars may apply for a one-time leave (up to 12 months) to accept or continue with a tenure-track teaching appointment but for no other reason. Academy Scholars may not accept other sources of funding, awards, or obligations during their appointment.
