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.

As a Radcliffe Institute research partner, you will partner with a fellow from September through May, unless specified otherwise. You will be paid $13 per hour and work an average of 5 to 10 hours a week (and not more than 20 hours per week during the academic term).

Students may apply now to participate during the 2013–2014 academic year. Contact the Radcliffe Institute Research Partnership Program for information on projects that are still open.
