Fellowships of $82,500 to USA, Canada, and International scholars to participate in a nine-month program to pursue advanced individual projects in the natural sciences and mathematics areas. Disciplines may include biology and medical sciences, chemistry, computer science, earth and planetary sciences, engineering sciences, mathematics and applied sciences, materials science, physics and astronomy/astrophysics, and statistics.

Radcliffe Institute 2019-20 Theme
As part of a one-year initiative at the Institute on the broad theme of the human body, applications are particularly welcomed related to this topic in all disciplines (arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences), as well as those that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.

This is a residential fellowship; therefore, fellows are expected to reside in the Boston area for the duration of their time as Radcliffe fellows. Fellows are expected to be free of their regular commitments so they may devote themselves full time to the work outlined in their proposal. The Institute will provide office or studio space and access to libraries and other resources at Harvard University during the fellowship year. Radcliffe fellows may also be eligible to receive relocation, housing, and childcare funds to aid them in making a smooth transition to Radcliffe. Health care options are made available as needed.
