The Weatherhead Initiative on Global History (WIGH) at Harvard University identifies and supports outstanding scholars whose work responds to the growing interest in the encompassing study of global history. They seek to organize a community of scholars interested in the systematic scrutiny of developments that have unfolded across national, regional, and continental boundaries and who propose to analyze the interconnections—cultural, economic, ecological, political and demographic-among world societies. We encourage applicants from all over the world, and especially from outside Europe and North America, hoping to create a global conversation on global history. WIGH Fellows are appointed for one year and are provided time, guidance, office space, and access to Harvard University facilities. They should be prepared to devote their entire time to productive scholarship and may undertake sustained projects of research or other original work. They will join a vibrant community of global history scholars at Harvard.
Duration of award(s):
Fellowship is offered for one year.
What does it cover?
Fellows will receive an annual stipend of up to $50,000, according to fellows’ needs. Because they cannot always offer the amount requested, we urge applicants to apply for funding from other sources as well.
