Their scholarship may elucidate domestic, comparative, or  transnational issues, past or present. The Academy Scholars are a select  community of individuals with resourcefulness, initiative, curiosity, and  originality, whose work in non-Western cultures or regions shows promise as a  foundation for exceptional careers in major universities or international  institutions. Academy Scholars are appointed for two years by the Harvard  Academy for International and Area Studies and are provided time, guidance, and  access to Harvard University facilities. They receive substantial financial and  research assistance to undertake sustained projects of research and/or acquire  accessory training in their chosen fields and areas. The Senior Scholars, a  distinguished group of senior Harvard University faculty members, act as mentors  to the Academy Scholars to help them achieve their intellectual potential.
