Program Summary

* Murray Research Center Fellowship Program
* Schlesinger Library Fellowship Program

The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study is a scholarly community where individuals pursue advanced work across a wide range of academic disciplines, professions, or creative arts. Within this broad purpose, and in recognition of Radcliffe's historic contributions to the education of women and to the study of issues related to women, the Radcliffe Institute sustains a continuing commitment to the study of women, gender, and society.

Murray Research Center Fellowship Program The Murray Research Center is a national repository for social science data on human development and social change. An important goal of the Murray Center is to promote the use of its archival data for new research, to support longitudinal research on human development and the life course, and to support research on the life experiences of racially or ethnically diverse populations. The Murray Research Center will appoint a number of fellows with an established record of research on gender and social change or human development and the life course. Scholars from a wide range of fields include psychology, sociology, political science, and anthropology are encouraged to apply.

Schlesinger Library Fellowship Program The Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America is a non-circulating research library that documents the history of women in the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Library offers fellowships to scholars with preferences to those who are actively pursuing research that requires or will benefit from access to the Library's holdings.

Applicants should include in their project proposal any Schlesinger Library holdings to be consulted and the significance of these holdings to the proposed research.


The Radcliffe Fellowship Program is designed to support scholars, scientists, artists, and writers of exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishment who wish to pursue independent work in academic and professional fields and in the creative arts. Please also see Program Summary for more detailed eligibility requirements.
