Graduate Student Associates

Graduate Student Associates are an integral part of the multidisciplinary community of scholars at the Davis Center. Benefits include:

    • Enhanced opportunities for contact with Davis Center associates, visiting scholars, and guest lecturers
    • Invitations to special events
    • Eligibility for office space (priority given to Ph.D. candidates who have already passed general exams)

Applicants for Graduate Student Associate status must be enrolled in a degree-granting program at Harvard University and be pursuing research or study related to Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, or the Caucasus.

Applications for Graduate Student Associate status are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. Office space allocations are made each spring for the coming academic year, and Graduate Student Associates must re-apply for space each year. Please contact Donna Cardarelli ( with any questions about office space.
