The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies
The Academy Scholars Program

The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies, an endowed program 
established at Harvard University in 1986, announces its latest competition 
for Academy Scholarships. The Academy seeks outstanding scholars who are at 
the start of their careers whose work combines disciplinary excellence 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.

Each year the Academy makes 4-5 two-year appointments to such individuals. 
Academy Scholars receive generous stipends, research and travel funding, and 
are provided with office space as well as administrative support at Harvard's 
Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. They have full access to all 
of Harvard's academic resources and have no obligations except to pursue 
their research and studies. Some teaching is permitted but not required.

To be eligible, applicants must be recent recipients of the Ph.D. (or 
equivalent professional) degree or pursuing a doctoral candidacy and 
actively engaged in the final stages of writing the dissertation.

The Academy is particularly dependent on the assessment by faculty 
references of an applicant's academic accomplishments and scholarly 
potential. Please feel free to contact the Academy Program at any time for 
more information. You are encouraged to check our website, 
http://www.wcfia.harvard.edu/academy, as well.

Deadline: October 10, 2008
