Applications are now invited from meritorious and qualified candidates for the Radcliffe Fellowship Program 2021-2022.
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.
- Radcliffe Institute fellows are in residence for a period of nine months from September 1, 2021, through May 31, 2022, and receive a stipend of $78,000 plus an additional $5,000 to cover project expenses.
- As this is a residential fellowship, fellows are expected to reside in the Greater Boston area for the duration of their fellowship.
- Fellows may be eligible to receive additional funds for moving expenses, childcare, and housing to aid them in making a smooth transition. Healthcare options are made available as needed.
- Radcliffe Fellows receive office or studio space in Byerly Hall and full-time Harvard appointments as visiting fellows, granting them access to Harvard University’s various resources, including libraries, housing, and athletic facilities.
- Open to scientists, writers, scholars, public intellectuals, and artists whose work is making a difference in their professional fields and in the larger world;
- Applicants may apply as individuals or in a group of two to three people working on the same project;
- They seek diversity along many dimensions, including discipline, career stage, race and ethnicity, country of origin, gender and sexual orientation, and ideological perspective. Although fellows come from many different backgrounds, they are united by their demonstrated excellence, collegiality, and creativity.
Each application is reviewed in a two-tiered process–first by experts in the relevant field, then by a multidisciplinary committee charged with selecting a diverse class of fellows of the highest achievement and potential.
Applications are evaluated on the quality and significance of the proposed project and the applicant’s intellectual and creative capacity, as evidenced by a strong record of achievement or extraordinary promise
