The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study offers one-year fellowships and creates an interdisciplinary, international community of 50 fellows across the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. The Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program has awarded more than 950 fellowships since our founding in 1999.
Radcliffe fellows are exceptional scientists, writers, scholars, public intellectuals, and artists whose work is making a difference in their professional fields and in the larger world. 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.
