2016 Volkswagen Foundation Fellowships for international students At Harvard University, USA

ss volks

The Weatherhead Initiative on Global History (WIGH) at Harvard University is offering Fellowships for international students. This fellowship is funded by a grant from the Volkswagen Foundation. WIGH Fellows are appointed for one year and are provided time, guidance, office space, and access to Harvard University facilities. Fellows will receive an annual stipend of up to $50,000, according to fellows’ needs. The application deadline is December 15, 2015.

Study Subject(s): Fellowships are provided to learn any of the courses offered by the Harvard University in USA.
Course Level: This is a one year residential fellowship at Harvard University.
Scholarship Provider: Volkswagen Foundation
Scholarship can be taken at: USA

Eligibility: The competition for these awards is open only to scholars with a PhD (or comparable professional school degree). If still pursuing the PhD, WIGH Fellows must receive their degree no later than May 2016. There is no limit on time since submission of the candidate’s degree; we are open to candidates at various stages of their careers. They expect that candidates will be able to submit samples of independent work (articles, papers, dissertation chapters) in support of their candidacies on request. The WIGH Fellowship is residential and Fellows are expected to live in the Cambridge/Boston area for the duration of their appointments unless traveling for pre-approved research purposes, and they are expected to participate in WIGH activities, including a bi-weekly seminar.

Scholarship Open for International Students: International students (especially from outside Europe and North America) can apply for the fellowships.

Scholarship Description: The Weatherhead Initiative on Global History (WIGH) at Harvard University identifies and supports outstanding scholars whose work responds to the growing interest in the encompassing study of global history. They seek to organize a community of scholars interested in the systematic scrutiny of developments that have unfolded across national, regional, and continental boundaries and who propose to analyze the interconnections—cultural, economic, ecological, political and demographic—among world societies. We encourage applicants from all over the world, and especially from outside Europe and North America, hoping to create a global conversation on global history. WIGH Fellows are appointed for one year and are provided time, guidance, office space, and access to Harvard University facilities. They should be prepared to devote their entire time to productive scholarship and may undertake sustained projects of research or other original work. They will join a vibrant community of global history scholars at Harvard.
