Each summer, the Human Rights and Social Movements Program will award up to two Traub-Dicker-HKS Summer Research Fellowships to Harvard Kennedy School students conducting original research on policies affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities.  Fellowship research will be supervised by Dr. McCarthy.

Traub-Dicker-HKS Summer Research Fellowship

The Traub-Dicker Fellowship has been made possible by the generous support of Margaret Traub, Harvard College Class of 1980, and her partner Phyllis Dicker.

Funding: The Traub-Dicker-HKS Summer Research Fellowship comes with a grant award of $4000.  The full grant amount will be distributed in two installments:  $3000 at the commencement of the research, and the final $1000 to be awarded upon the submission of the final product. 
Eligibility: The summer research fellowship is only available to Harvard Kennedy School students.
Selection: Traub-Dicker Summer Research Fellows will be chosen by a committee that includes:  Ms. Traub; Dr. McCarthy; the Carr Center Executive Director; and the previous year’s Traub-Dicker Fellow(s).
Expectations: The goal of the fellowship is to allow its recipients to produce a serious and possibly publishable piece of policy research. Recipients will be expected to meet with Professor Timothy McCarthy, faculty advisor for the Traub-Dicker-HKS Fellowship, before the commencement of the research, periodically throughout the summer, and as early as possible upon returning to campus in September. A draft of the research project will be due to Professor McCarthy and the Carr Center by September 30, 2011. The final project should be completed no later than November 1, 2011. There is no requirement or expectation that the recipients will remain in residence at the Carr Center throughout the summer, but if they choose to do so, they will have access to Carr Center resources, including work space, xerox, fax, computer, and phone resources.
Duration: Summer 2011 (June 1, 2010 to September 30, 2010)
Application: For details of the application process, please visit our the Carr Center's web site and look under the “Summer Fellowships” option on the “Opportunities” menu  or you can go there directly by clicking here.
