Deadline Reminders for HBS Fellowships

The Business History Group at the Harvard Business School offers several fellowships, two of which have September deadlines.

The Thomas K. McCraw Fellowship seeks applicants who are established scholars from around the world interested in the business and economic history of the United States. The recipient receives a $7,000 stipend for travel and living expenses and is expected to be in residence at Harvard Business School a minimum of two months. Main activities include researching in Baker Library archives or other Boston-area libraries, presenting research at a seminar, and interacting with HBS faculty. Application materials and letters of reference are due by September 15 of the year preceding the year the Fellowship is to be used.

The Alfred D. Chandler Jr. International Visiting Scholar in Business History Program seeks applicants who are established scholars in business history based outside the United States. The recipient receives a $7,000 stipend and is required to be in residence at least two months but not more than six months at the Harvard Business School. Main activities include interacting with faculty and researchers, presenting work at research seminars, and researching business history. Application materials and letters of reference are due by September 15 of the year preceding the year the Fellowship is to be used.

The Alfred D. Chandler Jr. Travel Fellowships facilitate library and archival research in business or economic history. Grants range from $1,000 to $3,000. Applicants must be 1) Harvard University graduate students in history, economics, or business administration whose research requires travel to distant archives or repositories; 2) graduate students or non-tenured faculty in those fields from other universities in either the United States or abroad whose research requires travel to Baker Library and other Boston-area archives; or 3) Harvard College undergraduates writing senior theses in these fields whose research requires travel away from Cambridge. Application materials are due by November 1 of the year preceding the year the Fellowship is to be used.

For all these fellowships, materials should be sent to Walter A. Friedman, Connell 301A, Harvard Business School, Boston, MA 02163, USA, or via email to wfriedman@hbs.edu. Letters of reference must be sent directly by the recommenders.
