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.

For additional information, please visit the Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship website.

Joseph Hodges Choate Fellowship

The Choate Memorial Fellowship is awarded each year upon the nomination of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, England, to a British citizen coming from that university for graduate study or research at Harvard University for one academic year. This fellowship is not renewable.

Harlech Scholarship

The Harlech Scholarship commemorates the memory of the late Lord Harlech with an exchange of scholars between Harvard University and New College, Oxford.

The Harlech Scholars' Trust has announced that the scholarship program will conclude with the 2018-19 academic year. The trustees will work to reformulate the nature of the memorial to Lord Harlech. It is hoped that an annual Harlech Lecture will be established. Under the broad theme of diplomacy, this is envisaged as a fine ongoing tribute, continuing to reflect the breadth of Lord Harlech's personal and professional interests in the soft, as well as the hard, currencies of cultural and political exchange.

For information about the establishing of the lecture, please contact Annie Thomas at
