Weatherhead Scholars Program

The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs (WCFIA) at Harvard University invites applications to its Scholars Program for 2017–2018. Established in 1958, the WCFIA is the largest international social science research center within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. We support international, transnational, global, and comparative research, whether historical or contemporary, including policy analysis.

This new program offers visiting faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and experienced practitioners the opportunity to spend up to one academic year at Harvard. During their time in residence, Scholars are expected to present their research in biweekly Weatherhead Scholars seminars; participate in the monthly Director’s Seminar; contribute to some of the Center’s many other intellectual activities, including our new research clusters (to be announced in April); and engage with the undergraduate and graduate student communities.

Kathleen Molony is the Scholars Program director. The program offices are located at 61 Kirkland Street.
