Based in Radcliffe Yard—a sanctuary in the heart of Harvard University—fellows join a uniquely interdisciplinary and creative community.


Applicants must demonstrate a strong body of independent research and writing that has been published, exhibited, or performed. Science, engineering, mathematics, humanities, and social sciences applicants must have received their doctorate (or appropriate terminal degree) in the area of the proposed projects. Applicants in the creative arts must meet discipline-specific eligibility requirements.

Each academic area has discipline-specific eligibility requirements. To learn more click the Eligibility Guidelines and Application Materials and program details specific to your discipline.
