Deadline: September 23, 2015 (for humanities, social science, and creative arts) / October 15, 2015 (for mathematics and natural science)

Applications are invited for the Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program at Harvard University. The Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program annually selects and supports 50 leading artists and scholars who have both exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishments. The fellowships are designed to support scholars, scientists, artists, and writers who wish to pursue work in academic and professional fields and in the creative arts.

The Radcliffe Institute encourages applications in all disciplines and on any topic in recognition of Radcliffe’s historic contributions to the education of women and to the study of issues related to women, the Radcliffe Institute sustains a continuing commitment to the study of women, gender, and society.


  • Stipends are funded up to USD 75,000 for one year (around EUR 68,000) with additional funds for project expenses. Some support for relocation expenses is provided where relevant.
  • Fellows receive office or studio space and access to libraries and other resources of Harvard University during the fellowship year, which extends from early September 2016 through 31 May 2017.
  • Visual, film, and video artists may apply to come for either one or two semesters. If they come for one semester, the stipend is USD 37,500 (around EUR 34,ooo).
  • Since this is a residential fellowship, they expect fellows to reside in the Boston area during that period and to have their primary office at the Institute so that they can participate fully in the life of the community.


Candidates from across the United States and throughout the world, including developing countries, are encouraged to apply. See Eligibility Guidelines.
