Up to three (3) Frank Knox Memorial Fellowships will be awarded to students from Canada for graduate study at Harvard University in the academic year 2011-2012.

The Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship program was established by Annie Reid Knox who sought to honor her late husband and his lifelong commitment to America. Mrs. Knox expressed the hope that the holders of the fellowships return to their homes and become leaders in their chosen field once they had gained knowledge and experience from their study away from Canada.

Please carefully read the following eligibility criteria as some restrictions apply. For more information about the fellowship, you may consult the Harvard University website at http://www.frankknox.harvard.edu/welcome.html

Eligibility:

  • Open to Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada who are normally residing in Canada.
  • Have graduated no earlier than 2009 or will graduate before September 2011 from an institution in Canada, which is a member or affiliated to a member of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC).
  • Applicants to the Harvard Law School should have completed their resident university education and hold a basic degree in Law before applying for an advanced degree program such as the Master of Laws (LLM).
  • Candidates are responsible for gaining admission to Harvard University by the deadline set by the various faculties.

  • Applications from students presently studying in the United States will not be considered.

Value: A Knox Fellowship pays full Harvard tuition and mandatory health insurance fees and provides a stipend sufficient to cover the living expenses of a single Fellow for a 10-month academic year. Knox Fellows who plan to bring spouses, partners or other family members with them to Harvard must secure additional sources of funding to support their families. Knox Fellowship funding is guaranteed for up to two years of study at Harvard for students in degree programs requiring more than one year of study. The Committee on General Scholarships will consider Knox Fellowship renewals after the second year on a case-by-case basis.

Number available: Up to three fellowships for graduate studies (Master's and Ph.D.) will be offered.

Eligible institution: Harvard University.

Please note: All applications and supporting documents must be submitted in English only.
