Welcome to the Harkness Fellows Association Website
The Harkness Fellows Association and Transatlantic Trust is the alumni association of Harkness Fellowships, an international programme offering study fellowships in the USA, which started in 1925 and changed its focus in 1998. The aims of the association are to keep alive the spirit of the programme and to encourage trans-Atlantic contacts and relationships. To this end it runs a programme of lectures, seminars, workshops and other activities, publishes a Members’ newsletter, the Harkness Report, and has produced a film about the programme, which you can view by clicking on the Harkness Video link.
Membership of the Harkness Fellows Association is open to all interested in trans-Atlantic relationships. The core of our members are former Harkness and Commonwealth Fund Fellows who at some stage in their careers enjoyed the benefit of living, studying and travelling in the United States of America, generously funded by the Commonwealth Fund of New York, and in many cases by other home country organisations.
