Anne Dias Griffin and Kenneth C. Griffin Harvard University Fellowships

The Anne Dias Griffin and Kenneth C. Griffin Harvard University Fellowships will support students from France who are enrolling in a full-time master's degree program at the Harvard Business School or the Harvard Kennedy School, or the joint-degree program between the two schools.

Recipients will be selected for their outstanding leadership potential and academic achievement. The awards will cover a portion of the cost of attendance and will be renewable for each year of the degree program, up to two years. The fellowships are made possible by the generosity of the Anne Dias Griffin and Kenneth C. Griffin Harvard University Fellowship Fund.

The recipients will be invited to join a network of fellows and to participate in events hosted by Anne Dias Griffin. Fellowship funding is not linked to participation; however recipients are encouraged to consider this network as a benefit for their future careers.

Deadline: March 10, 2019

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Committee on General Scholarships at cgs@fas.harvard.edu.
