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 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 research partner, you will work with a fellow from September 2018 through May 31, 2019. You will be paid $15 per hour and work an average of 8 to 20 hours a week.

Applications are due Thursday, August 23, 2018, at 5 p.m. After this date, please reach out to the Radcliffe Institute Research Partnership Program regarding projects that are still open.

Contact the Radcliffe Research Partnership program at or 617-495-8212 for information on 2018–2019 projects.
