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.


Women and men 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 HERE.

Please note: Applicants may not be students in a degree program at the time of application submission. See further eligibility information HERE.


Stipends are funded up to $75,000 for one year 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 2015 through 31  May 2016.

Visual artists and film, video, sound, and new media artists may apply to come for either one or two semesters. In the event that they come for one semester, the stipend is $35,000.

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.


The deadline for humanities, social science, and creative arts is 1 October 2014.
The deadline for natural science and mathematics is 1 November 2014.

You must register online HERE and complete the application online. Applicants are notified of the results of the selection process in March 2015.
