Scholarship Description: 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. 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. Applicants’ projects need not focus on gender, however. Women and men from across the United States and throughout the world, including developing countries, are encouraged to apply. We seek to build a community of fellows that is diverse in every way. Former fellows of the Radcliffe Institute (1999 to present) are not eligible to apply.

Number of award(s): The Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program annually selects and supports 50 leading artists and scholars.

Duration of award(s): The duration of the fellowship is for one year.

What does it cover? Stipends are funded up to $70,000 for one year with additional funds for project expenses. Some support for relocation expenses is provided where relevant. We work with fellows with families who have particular issues connected to relocating to smooth the transition. If so directed, Radcliffe will pay the stipend to the fellow’s home institution.
-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 2014 through May 31, 2015. 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.
-If you fall in this category and are interested in only coming for one semester, please indicate that in your abstract. Fellows are expected to be free of their regular commitments so they may devote themselves full time to the work outlined in their proposal. Since this is a residential fellowship, we expect fellows 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.

Selection Criteria: 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 of the results of the selection process in March. Cluster proposals from two to three individuals, all of whom fit the criteria status for individual applicants, will be accepted for review. Cluster proposals are due by May 1, 2013.

Notification: Applicants will be notified by email about the results of the selection process in March.

How to Apply: The mode of applying is online.

Scholarship Application Deadline: The deadline for humanities, social science, and creative arts is October 1, 2013. The deadline for natural science and mathematics is November 1, 2013.
