The Frank Knox Memorial Fellowships were established at Harvard University by Annie Reid Knox in honour of her late husband Frank Knox who served as Secretary of the U.S. Navy in the 1940s.
The Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship program promotes this legacy through scholarly exchange, in part by providing fellowships to students from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom who wish to conduct graduate study at one of Harvard University’s ten graduate or professional schools.
