Grants and Scholarships

Do you offer additional resources for research and/or conference travel?

Scholars and fellows are all eligible to be assigned an undergraduate Research Assistant throughout the duration of their appointment; students are paid by the Weatherhead Center, at $17/hr for 5-10 hours/week. Research Assistants must be Harvard College students in residence/in Massachusetts. 

At this point, we are not offering additional travel grants for participation in events and conferences.

Do you write letters in support of funding applications?

Because the deadline for grant applications often precedes the Weatherhead Center’s application deadline as well as the time when candidates are notified, we are able to write conditional letters in support of grant applications. That is, we write a letter of invitation to the Program and specify that the offer depends on receiving funding and earning acceptance into the Weatherhead Scholars Program. The grant applicant must apply separately to the Weatherhead Scholars Program.
