Deadline: September 13, 2024
Special Interests: Boston



Each of the more than 800 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.

The Radcliffe Fellowship Program awards 50 fellowships each academic year. Applicants may apply as individuals or in a group of two to three people working on the same project. We seek diversity along many dimensions, including discipline, career stage, race and ethnicity, country of origin, gender and sexual orientation, and ideological perspective.

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

No updates as of October 2023. Using past info to predict new submission date.
