The Office of Career Services advises on and manages select postgraduation fellowship opportunities requiring HDS nomination. Included are U.S. Student Program Fulbright Fellowships, Harvard Traveling Fellowships (Kennedy/Knox/Sheldon), and the Presidential Management Fellowship.
Other fellowships and grants
The primary resource at HDS for information and advice on a wide range of grants and research fellowships is the Office of Financial Aid. Other good resources are the public website of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Fellowships Office and The Graduate Guide to Grants, an annual publication of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Also check the Harvard University Committee on General Scholarships for information on grants and traveling fellowship funds and the HDS Office of Ministry Studies for information on funds that may be available for international field education placements.
Fellowships that are more in the nature of pay-in-exchange-for-work are publicized in the Hired career management system. Simply log in to Hired and search job listings, which often include fellowship opportunities.
