The Frank Boas Scholarship provides two scholarships for graduate studies at Harvard. One is the Graduate Study Scholarship at Harvard University and the other is the International Legal Studies Scholarship at the Harvard Law School. The Graduate Study Scholarship provides a scholarship for one year at Harvard. The International Legal Studies Scholarship provides a partial scholarship based on the candidate’s financial need. In both cases, Fulbright Belgium will provide a travel grant. Beneficiaries will receive J-visa sponsorship for themselves and their family. The US Department of State will provide sickness and accident insurance.
Candidates should have a bachelor’s degree. Candidates should be proficient in English. Candidates should have an excellent academic track record. Candidates who already have a J-1 student or scholar visa in the preceding two years are not eligible. Researchers may apply but candidates pursuing degrees are given priority.
