The Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program is a scholarly community where individuals pursue advanced work across a wide range of academic disciplines, professions, and creative arts. Radcliffe Institute fellowships are designed to support scholars, scientists, artists, and writers of exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishment 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.
Candidates from across the United States and throughout the world, including developing countries, are encouraged to apply. The Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program annually selects and supports 50 leading artists and scholars who have both exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishments. Check the list of disciplines supported.
Applicants may not be students in a degree program at the time of application submission.
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.
