Deadline 1: 12 September, 2019
Deadline 2: 3 October, 2019
The Radcliffe Fellowship Program awards 50 fellowships each academic year. Applicants may apply as individuals or in a group of two to three people working on the same project. We seek diversity along many dimensions, including discipline, career stage, race and ethnicity, country of origin, gender and sexual orientation, and ideological perspective. Although our fellows come from many different backgrounds, they are united by their demonstrated excellence, collegiality, and creativity.
“During my year at Radcliffe, I have most enjoyed the rich and generous interaction with other fellows, the opportunity to engage with the wider Harvard community, and the space away from my professional responsibilities to reflect on the past few years. My book could not have been conceived without the space the fellowship created.”
—Hernan del Valle, 2018–2019 Rita E. Hauser Fellow
Explore the broad range of Radcliffe fellows’ projects. The following areas—while not exclusive—are of special interest:
- Radcliffe supports engaged scholarship. We welcome applications from scholars and practitioners who connect research to law, policy, pressing social issues, and/or who seek to actively engage audiences beyond academia.
- Reflecting Radcliffe’s unique history, each year some projects focus on women, gender, and society or draw on the Schlesinger Library’s rich collections. In 2020–2021, one fellow will be designated a Mellon-Schlesinger fellow, as part of the project commemorating the centennial of the 19th Amendment.
They welcome applications from a broad range of fields.
The deadline for applications in humanities, social sciences, and creative arts is September 12, 2019.
The deadline for applications in science, engineering, and mathematics is October 3, 2019.
