  • a stipend of $31,000, with the possibility of an additional $750 for travel related to conferences and job interviews;

You may apply to become a graduate student fellow via CARAT. A complete application with all necessary documents must be uploaded to CARAT by 14th September, 2017 . To apply, download the standard application form.

Applicants for Radcliffe Institute Dissertation Completion Fellowships must include a brief statement describing how an affiliation with the Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program would benefit them; a two-page resume; a dissertation abstract and a table of contents; two letters of recommendation, one of which must be written by the dissertation advisor; and two faculty evaluation forms.

While a candidate’s scholarly qualifications, the merits of the dissertation topic, and faculty references are important in the selection process, consideration is also given to graduate fellows with research interests matching those of one or more of the year’s Radcliffe Institute fellows. This increases opportunities for intellectual interaction and mentorship within the community.
