THE ALFRED D. CHANDLER JR. TRAVEL FELLOWSHIPS
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 purpose of this fellowship is to facilitate library and archival research in business or economic history. Individual grants range from $1,000 to $3,000. Three categories of applicants will be eligible for grants: 1) Harvard University graduate students in history, economics, or business administration, whose research requires travel to distant archives or repositories; 2) graduate students or nontenured faculty in those fields from other universities, in the U.S. and abroad, whose research requires travel to Baker Library and other local archives; and 3) Harvard College undergraduates writing senior theses in these fields whose research requires travel away from Cambridge.
To apply, send a CV, a summary of past academic research (of 1-2 pages), and a detailed description of the research you wish to undertake (of 2-3 pages). Applicants must indicate the amount of money requested (up to $3,000). Please also arrange to have one letter of reference sent via email directly from the recommender to Walter A. Friedman. The deadline for receipt of applications is November 5, 2018. All materials should be sent to Walter A. Friedman via e-mail at email@example.com.
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.
