Fellowships for journalists at Harvard University

Journalists and film, video, sound and new media artists can apply for this fellowship at Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. This Fellowship Program is a scholarly community where individuals pursue advanced work across a wide range of academic disciplines, professions and creative arts, including journalism.

The institute provides stipends of up to $77,500 for one year with additional funds for project expenses. Fellows receive office or studio space and access to libraries and other resources of Harvard University during the fellowship year, which extends from September 2018 through May 2019.

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.

Applications are judged on the quality and significance of the proposed project and the applicant’s record of achievement and promise. Applications that involve the study of women, gender, and society, which is a commitment rooted in Radcliffe’s unique history, are very welcome.

The Institute seeks to build a community of fellows that is diverse in every way.

Visual, film, video, sound and new media artists may apply for either one or two semesters.

Journalism applicants must have worked professionally in the field for at least five years.

The application deadline is Sept. 14.
