The business history group awards four different fellowships and grants. The Harvard-Newcomen Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Business History has been given annually since 1949. The recipient spends a year in residence working on his or her research project and participating in the School’s various activities in business history. Many scholars who now rank among the world’s leading business historians have held this fellowship. Since 1991, the Alfred D. Chandler Jr. Travel Fellowships have been offered to enable graduate students in history or related disciplines to come to Harvard—and Harvard students to go elsewhere—for research in business or economic history. The Alfred D. Chandler Jr. International Visiting Scholar Program in Business History was established in 2005 to allow established scholars based outside the United States to spend several months at Harvard Business School. The newest fellowship is the Thomas K. McCraw Fellowship in U.S. Business History, which was established in 2008.

The Alfred D. Chandler Jr. International Visiting Scholar in Business History Program invites established scholars in business history based outside the United States to spend a period of time in residence at Harvard Business School. The Chandler International Visiting Scholar is expected to interact with faculty and researchers, present work at research seminars, and conduct business history research.

Recipients will be given a $7,000 stipend (payable at the end of their visit), office space, an e-mail account, phone, computer, ID card, and access to the University’s libraries and the HBS Intranet. The program requires a two-month minimum length of stay. Scholars may stay up to a maximum of six months. Applicants should indicate when, during the calendar year, they would like to be in residence at the School. It is expected that the recipient will be actively engaged in the intellectual life of the business history group.

Applicants should send a cover letter, a CV, and a two- to three-page research proposal to Walter A. Friedman via e-mail at wfriedman@hbs.edu. Applications for the fellowship should arrive no later than October 15, 2018. The applicant should also arrange for two letters of reference, sent directly by the recommender, to arrive at the above email address by October 15. The visiting scholar will be announced by the beginning of December.

Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
