Academy Scholars Programme For Recent PhD Recipients

Recent PhD recipients and doctoral candidates in the social sciences or law are invited to apply for the Academy Scholars Programme. Scholars will be appointed for a two-year, in-residence, postdoctoral fellowship in the Cambridge/Boston area. Fellows will receive an annual stipend of up to $70,000. The deadline is on Friday 1st October 2021.

The Academy Scholars Programme identifies and supports outstanding scholars at the start of their careers whose work combines disciplinary excellence in the social sciences or law with a command of the language and history or culture of countries or regions outside of the United States or Canada.

Postdoctoral Academy Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $70,000. If selected before earning the PhD, the Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $35,000 until awarded the PhD.

This stipend is supplemented by funding for conference and research travel, research assistants, and health insurance coverage.

Some teaching is permitted but not required. Applications are welcome from qualified persons without regard to nationality, gender, or race.

The deadline is on Friday 1st October 2021.
