The Academy Scholars Program was established to identify and support outstanding scholars who are at the start of their careers and 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. Their scholarship may elucidate domestic, comparative, or transnational issues, past or present. Academy Scholars are appointed for a two-year, in-residence, postdoctoral fellowship at The Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA. They receive substantial financial and research assistance to undertake sustained projects of research and/or acquire accessory training in their chosen fields and areas. They participate actively in the intellectual life of the University, engaging in seminars, workshops, and conferences. They often advise graduate or undergraduate students on their research projects. During the course of the fellowship, each Academy Scholar presents his or her work at a seminar to colleagues, Harvard Academy Senior Scholars, and other interested faculty and graduate students. Many Academy Scholars, in addition, present their work for intensive discussion at The Harvard Academy-sponsored author's conferences, to which a small number of colleagues from Harvard and other universities are invited.
