Deadline Reminder: Harvard-Newcomen Fellowship

A reminder that the deadline is approaching for the Harvard-Newcomen Postdoctoral Fellowship in Business History; the due date for applications is October 15, 2014.
    This Fellowship will be awarded for twelve months’ residence, study, and research at Harvard Business School. The fellowship is open to scholars who, within the last ten years, have received a Ph.D. in history, economics, or a related discipline. The fellowship has two purposes: The first is to enable scholars to engage in research that will benefit from the resources of Harvard Business School and the larger Boston scholarly community. A travel fund and a book fund will be provided. The second is to provide an opportunity for the fellow to participate in the activities of Harvard Business School. The fellow is required to research and write a case, under the direction of a senior faculty member, to be used in one of the business history courses. The Fellowship will begin July 1.
     Applicants should submit a CV, undergraduate transcript and graduate-school record, thesis abstract, and writing sample (such as an article or a book chapter). Applicants should also state the topics, objectives, and design for the specific research to be undertaken. Finally, applicants should indicate the names of three people who will write references on their behalf. The three letters of recommendation are to be submitted by the writers directly by October 15.
     Applications should be submitted online to: https://poplar.hbs.edu/ofr/register/registerApplicant.htm. Please direct recommenders to visit: https://poplar.hbs.edu/ofr/upload/startUploadRecommendation.htm.
