The Weatherhead Initiative for Global History will award up to two summer graduate dissertation fellowships for research on topics in global history. The Global History fellowships are designated to facilitate investigations that link two or more regions of the world in a shared historical development. The objective of the Weatherhead Initiative and the fellowships is to encourage research that focuses less on international relations as traditionally conceived than on economic and cultural exchange, comparative institutional or ecological development, and topics involving demography, health, migration, religious or social movements, and the communication of goods and ideas across world regions.

Eligibility is limited to Harvard doctoral candidates who have completed their course work.
