Biographical / Historical

The Commonwealth Fund is a philanthropic foundation set up in the United States by Anna Harkness in 1918. In 1925 her son, Edward Harkness, initiated the Commonwealth Fund Fellowships which were intended to reciprocate the Rhodes Scholarships by enabling British graduates to study in the United States. In 1927 the scheme was widened by the creation of Dominion Fellowships available to graduates from universities in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa. In 1929 a further category of Dominion Civil Service Fellowships was established. The awards were tenable from nine to fifteen months and candidates were to be under the age of 40.

In 1961 the Fellowships were renamed the Harkness Fellowships. In addition to the Civil Service Fellowships, a new category of General Fellowships was set up, open to people in the fields of business, banking, politics, creative arts and journalism. The maximum tenure period was extended to 21 months. In 1966 the distinction between Public Service and General Fellowships was abandoned. In 1970 the upper age limit was reduced to 30. On the completion of their tenure, Harkness Fellows were required to return to Australia for at least two years.

Until 1953 applications for all awards were handled by the London office of the Commonwealth Fund. In 1953 an Australian Nomination Committee was formed and local correspondents were appointed in each State and the ACT to answer inquiries and encourage applications. Sir Owen Dixon was the first Chairman of the Committee. The Executive Officers were H.C. Forster (1953-72), L.T. Hinde (1972-85) and Roger Beale (1985-97).

Since June 1997, the activities of the Harkness Fellowships in Australia have been limited to the field of health care. The present Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy Representative is Dr Jane Hall.

Series 3. Fellowships files: former Fellows (F 4), 1966-77 (Closed)

One of the conditions imposed by the Harkness Fellowships was that on the completion of their tenure in the US (or Canada), the Fellows were required to return to Australia for at least two years. Three of the Harkness Fellows from Australia did not meet this condition and their names were therefore removed from the Harkness Fellowships Directory.

The series includes correspondence and Fellowships applications. The final date in parentheses indicated the year of the Fellowship.
