The Alfred D. Chandler Jr. International Visiting Scholar in Business History Program invites established scholars in business history based outside the United States to spend a period of time in residence at Harvard Business School. The Chandler International Visiting Scholar is expected to interact with faculty and researchers, present work at research seminars, and conduct business history research.

Recipients will be given a $7,000 stipend (payable at the end of their visit), office space, an e-mail account, phone, computer, ID card, and access to the University’s libraries and the HBS Intranet. The program requires a two-month minimum length of stay. Scholars may stay up to a maximum of six months. It is expected that the recipient will be actively engaged in the intellectual life of the business history group. Fellowship recipients are strongly encouraged to be in residence to participate in the Business History Seminar, which meets from late September through November, and other fall activities. Applicants should indicate when during the calendar year they would like to be on campus. Applicants should submit a cover letter, a CV, and a two- to three-page research proposal online, no later than November 1, 2022. The applicant should also arrange for two letters of reference, sent directly by the recommender, to be submitted online by November 1, 2022. The visiting scholar will be announced by the beginning of December.
