The Center is offering full-year dissertation completion grants for the 2013–2014 academic year to Weatherhead Center Graduate Student Associates who will be in the final year of completing their dissertations. Interests are broadly defined to include research on international, transnational, global, and comparative national issues and may address contemporary or historical topics, including rigorous policy analysis, as well as the study of specific countries and regions outside the United States. The Center will continue to award one named dissertation completion grant in honor of Sidney R. Knafel, who served as chair of the Center's Visiting Committee from 1991 to 2000. The Center is delighted that to be able to offer additional fellowships, thanks to gifts from the Weatherhead Foundation and the Hartley R. Rogers family.
The fellowships carry with them a stipend of $23,690 plus facilities fees and individual health insurance. The dissertation fellows are provided with shared office space that is equipped with computers at the Weatherhead Center.
Current Weatherhead Center Graduate Student Associates who will complete their degree by the end of the 2013–2014 academic year may apply. The selection committee may require that at least one dissertation chapter be completed prior to applying for the completion grant.
Dissertation completion grant recipients must be in residence at Harvard and may not accept any other grants or teaching fellowships during the tenure of their fellowships.
