About the Award: Each of the more than 850 fellows who have been in residence at the Radcliffe Institute has pursued an independent project, but the collaborative experience unites all of them. Scholars, scientists, and artists work on individual projects, or in clusters, to generate new research, publications, art, and more.

Type: Fellowship

Eligibility: Applications in all academic disciplines, professions, and creative arts are encouraged, and there are a few areas of special interest:

  • Applications related to the theme of citizenship—local, national, and global—which is a two-year initiative across the programs of the Radcliffe Institute
  • Applications that involve the study of women, gender, and society, which is a commitment rooted in Radcliffe’s unique history
  • Applications that draw on the resources of the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, which is part of the Radcliffe Institute and one of the foremost archives on women’s history

Selection: Former fellows of the Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program (2000 to present) are not eligible to apply.

Each application is reviewed in a dual-tiered process by peers in relevant disciplines. Applications are judged on the quality and significance of the proposed project and the applicant’s record of achievement and promise. Applicants are notified by e-mail of the results of the selection process in March.

Number of Awards: 50

Value of Program: Stipends are funded up to $77,500 for one year with additional $5,000 to cover project expenses. Applicants may apply for either one or two semesters. Single-semester Radcliffe fellows receive a $38,750 stipend plus an additional $2,500 to cover project expenses. Some support for relocation expenses is provided where relevant. If so directed, Radcliffe will pay the stipend to the fellow’s home institution. Please note that we can only pay stipends to US-based home institutions.
