Center Associates

Center Associates are New England–area scholars who form the mainstay of the Davis Center’s community of scholars.

Center Associates are New England-area scholars whose research focuses on Eurasia. On any given day at the Davis Center, you might find Center Associates participating in a daytime or evening event, stopping by the Center to say hello on the way to one of Harvard's dozens of libraries, or meeting with a fellow Center Associate colleague for a conversation on campus. If you are a current or retired faculty member or practitioner, recently-graduated student, or community member pursuing scholarly research related to the region, we invite you to become part of our community by applying below.

Benefits

  • An initial three-year term, with the option to renew by application
  • A profile on the Davis Center website, allowing you to connect with other scholars in the area and in your field
  • Stack access at the Davis Center's Fung Library and Widener Library
  • Special invitations to Center Associates-only events and other opportunities

Please note that Center Associates, while part of the Davis Center community, do not hold a formal appointment with Harvard University.
