Fellowships of $77,500 to USA, Canada, and International scholars and practitioners to support creative new projects in the fields of arts, humanities, and social sciences. Fellows will be based in Greater Boston during their fellowship and will be required to regularly share their work in progress. Applications are welcome from a broad range of fields.
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 past and present.
Fellows are expected to be free of their regular commitments so they may devote themselves full time to the work outlined in their proposal. The Institute will provide office or studio space and access to libraries and other resources at Harvard University during the fellowship year. Radcliffe fellows may also be eligible to receive relocation, housing, and childcare funds to aid them in making a smooth transition to Radcliffe. Health care options are made available as needed.
The following areas, while not exclusive, are of special interest:
- Radcliffe supports engaged scholarship. Applications are welcomed from scholars and practitioners who connect research to law, policy, pressing social issues, and 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.
The Institute seeks to build a community of fellows that is diverse in every way.
