As a Harvard College student, you can be part of a research program that students have called “rewarding,” “unique,” and “amazing.”  You can work side by side with a Radcliffe Institute fellow.

Our Radcliffe Institute Research Partnership Program matches students with leading artists, scholars, scientists, and professionals.

The partnership is designed to be mutually beneficial. Fellows act as mentors, while students provide research assistance, acquire valuable research skills, and participate in the Institute’s rich intellectual life.

The partnerships mirror the multidisciplinary nature of the Institute with project topics in the

  • arts; 
  • gender studies;
  • the humanities;
  • public policy; and
  • science.
