THE 2003 ALFRED D. CHANDLER JR. TRAVELING FELLOWSHIPS IN BUSINESS HISTORY AND INSTITUTIONAL ECONOMIC HISTORY

By Walter A. Friedman

Abstract

These grants will range from $1,000 to $3,000 each and are considered taxable income. The total funds awarded in a given year will be approximately $15,000. The purpose of the fellowships is to facilitate library and archival research in business history or institutional economic history, broadly defined. The intent of the program is to encourage the kind of research exemplified by the work of Alfred D. Chandler Jr. Three categories of applicants are eligible for the grants: 1. Harvard University Graduate Students in History, Economics, Business Administration, or a related discipline such as Sociology, Government, or Law, whose research requires travel to distant archives or repositories. 2. Graduate Students or non-tenured faculty in those fields from other North American universities, whose research requires travel to the Boston-Cambridge area (to study, for example, in the collections at the Baker, Widener, McKay, Law, Kress, or Houghton libraries). 3. Harvard College Undergraduates writing senior theses in those fields, whose research requires similar travel. Fellowship recipients will be selected by a committee of three faculty members from Harvard University. Applications should be post-marked no later than December 1, 2002. Grants will be announced by the end of January 2003, and recipients may use their awards at any time during the calendar year 2003. Application forms should be sent to
