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. About
two-thirds of the fellow's time will be available for research of his or her
own choosing. A travel fund and a book fund will be provided. The second
purpose is to provide an opportunity for the fellow to participate in the
activities of Harvard Business School. Approximately one-third of the fellow's
time will be devoted to school activities, including attendance of the Business
History Seminar, and working with faculty teaching the business history courses
offered in the MBA curriculum. 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. Finally, the fellow is encouraged to submit an
article to Business History Review during his or her year at the School.
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, 2015. It is the
responsibility of the applicant to solicit these letters. The fellowship will
be awarded and all applicants notified by mid-January 2016. Hard copy materials
submitted with applications will be returned only if accompanied by postage and
a self-addressed return envelope.
Applications should be received
no later than October 15, 2015 and submitted online here.
If there are materials that can only be sent in hard copy, please send
them to: Walter A. Friedman Connell House 301A Harvard Business School
Boston, MA 02163 email email@example.com.
