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