Sponsor Deadline: December 15, 2017
Award Amount: stipend up to $62,000

The Charles Warren Center, Harvard's research center for North American history, invites applications for a workshop on U.S. Power in the Global Arena. In recent years, the history of U.S. foreign relations, or the United States and the World, has been invigorated as a field by the integration of insights and approaches from other fields and by incorporating actors, regions, and themes that had previously been sidelined. As the daily headlines remind us, the global projections of the power of the American state remain a crucial part of the world we live in. If we want to contend with the impacts of U.S. power in the global arena, history remains an indispensable tool in our kit. The goal of this Warren Center workshop is to take stock of recent developments in the historiography of U.S. global power, including in its diplomatic, military, economic, and cultural manifestations.

These annual fellowships support scholars of all disciplines to study at a location or locations--either national or international--other than their home institution. The aim is to stimulate and broaden the minds of teachers so as to improve and enhance the quality of their instruction. Grants are primarily for travel and related expenses and not as salary substitutes, scholarships or grants in aid. While there is a preference toward teachers at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Foundation awards fellowships across the New England area.

The Foundation does not maintain a website but application guidelines can be found  here . Applicants should submit all required materials along with the  candidate information form  to the foundation via email.
