The program of three-year postdoctoral Prize Fellowships in Economics, History and Politics, encourages outstanding scholarship in any field of economics, history, politics and related subjects, with a special emphasis on scholarship which crosses the frontiers between disciplines, and which addresses questions of lasting importance.

The period since 2000 has been a time of extraordinary inventiveness across the disciplinary frontiers of economics, history and politics, and of new challenges to all these disciplines. It has coincided with unprecedented change in global economic relationships. The program of Prize Fellowships, which has been made possible by a generous gift to Harvard University, is intended to transform the present moment of opportunity, and risk, into an enduring institutionalization of recent scholarly innovation.
