The Weatherhead Initiative on Global History (WIGH) at Harvard University is offering WIGH fellowship.
Fellowship is open to international students.
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.
Monetary Support: Fellows will receive an annual stipend of up to $50,000, according to fellows needs.
