As a fellow, you will focus on your individual project while benefiting from a dynamic, multidisciplinary community at Harvard University. Only 4 percent of applicants are selected each year. Fellows—women and men—are at the forefront of the arts, journalism, humanities, sciences, and social sciences.

Harvard Student Research Partnerships

Our student research program enables Harvard undergraduates to work closely with fellows on their projects throughout the year. Students have conducted research on the science of brownies, the economics of the Olympics, international sex trafficking laws, and the discovery of new planets.
