Applications are now open for the HARVARD RADCLIFFE INSTITUTE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM 2023-24.
Radcliffe fellows are exceptional scientists, writers, scholars, public intellectuals, practitioners, and artists whose work is making a difference in their professional fields and in the larger world.
Based in Radcliffe Yard—a sanctuary in the heart of Harvard University—fellows join a uniquely interdisciplinary and creative community. A fellowship at Radcliffe is an opportunity to step away from usual routines and dive deeply into a project. With access to Harvard’s unparalleled resources, Radcliffe fellows develop new tools and methods, challenge artistic and scholarly conventions, and illuminate our past and our present.
9 months, September 2023-May 2024
Fellows receive a stipend of $78000 plus an additional $5000 to cover project expenses.
