External Award: Frank Knox Memorial Fellowships at Harvard University

September 19, 2016

The Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship program at Harvard University is awarding up to three (3) fellowships to students from Canada for graduate study at Harvard University in the academic year 2017-2018. Frank Knox Memorial Fellows are selected on the basis of outstanding academic excellence, strength of character, and potential for leadership in their fields.


Knox Fellowships are open to men and women who:

  • are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada at the time of application and who are normally residing in Canada.
  • have completed a first degree or higher degree at a Canadian university which must be a member or affiliated with a member of Universities Canada.
  • are studying for a first or higher degree and will graduate in the academic year 2016-2017; OR have completed a first or higher degree and graduated no earlier than 2012.

Please note that persons who graduated before 2012 will not be eligible to apply.


A Knox Fellowship pays full Harvard tuition and mandatory health insurance fees and provides a stipend sufficient to cover the living expenses of a single Fellow for a 10-month academic year. Knox Fellows who plan to bring spouses, partners or other family members with them to Harvard must secure additional sources of funding to support their families. Knox Fellowship funding is guaranteed for up to two years of study at Harvard for students in graduate degree programs requiring more than one year of study. The Committee on General Scholarships will consider Knox Fellowship renewals after the second year on a case-by-case basis.
