Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies:
Pre- and Post-doctoral Fellowships (No US citizenship required)  

The Academy Scholars Program 
Pre- and Post-doctoral Fellowships 

The purpose of the Academy Scholars Program is to identify outstanding 
scholars who are at the start of their careers and whose work combines 
disciplinary excellence in the social sciences and history with an in-depth 
grounding in particular countries or regions outside the United States, 
Canada, and Western Europe. 

The Academy Scholars are a select group of individuals who show promise of 
becoming leading scholars at major universities. Pre-doctoral applicants 
must have completed all course work and general examinations by the 
beginning of the first year for which they plan to apply and are expected to 
have made some significant progress on their dissertations. Scholars are 
appointed and supported by the Harvard Academy for International and Area 
Studies to provide opportunities for advanced work while in residence at 
Harvard University, although travel for research is allowed. Academy 
Scholars are given time, guidance, access to Harvard facilities, and 
substantial financial assistance as they work for two years conducting 
either dissertation or post-doctoral research in their chosen fields and 
areas. 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.
