For Harvard applicants only.
The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs offers grants to support graduate student workshops and conferences. The research presented must relate to the interests of the Center, i.e., research focused on international, transnational, global, and comparative issues.
Grants generally range from $500 to $2,500, but the Center will consider larger requests. The Center is willing to cosponsor workshops and conferences with other departments or centers.
The students applying for these grants must be enrolled in a doctoral program in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences or one of the professional schools. The research presented must relate to the interests of the Center, i.e., research focused on international, transnational, global, and comparative issues. While the Center welcomes all applications, preference will be given to applications from Weatherhead Center-affiliated graduate students.
How to Apply
Applications should include a one- to two-page description of the event, including its theme, goals, and intended audience; a list of the graduate students, and their research topics, who will be presenting at/benefiting from the event; a conference agenda (a draft is acceptable); and a budget, including other confirmed or potential sources of funding, along with a completed application cover sheet (download a copy first before completing).
After the event, grant recipients must submit a brief event summary report to the Weatherhead Center.
Questions and applications should be directed to Ann Townes. Applications must be submitted to Ann Townes via email.
The Center encourages applications by October 15, but applications are considered on a rolling basis, pending the availability of funds.
