We have a number of programs for international students planning to study at Harvard graduate and professional schools. Please review the information below and the corresponding links to learn more about these funding opportunities.

United Kingdom

Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship

Frank Knox Fellowships are awarded to citizens of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom for graduate study or research at Harvard University. Interested students must apply for consideration before entering the U.S. and prior to the start of their Harvard programs. The fellowship pays tuition and health insurance fees plus a substantial living stipend, and is renewable for a second year for students in continuing degree programs. Approximately 15 new fellows are selected each year.

Knox Fellows will be connected with each other across the university in an academic and professional network.
