Doctoral students interested in a variety of policy-related issues are encouraged to apply to be Radcliffe/Rappaport Summer Doctoral Public Policy Fellows.
Students selected as doctoral fellows will receive a $7,000 stipend to work full-time in positions with the City of Boston or in other state and local agencies in the Greater Boston area. Fellows work with their supervisors to develop projects that are of immediate value to practitioners while also furthering their own research. The four doctoral students also will join the masters’ degree students who are Rappaport Summer Public Policy Fellows for weekly activities.
Fellows in both programs can come from a wide range of policy-related fields and have worked on a variety of issues. Previous doctoral fellows – who are studying engineering, geography, sociology, urban planning, public health, and education – worked on issues such as the impact of ex-prisoners on local neighborhoods, locational choices made by recipients of Section 8 vouchers, reducing health disparities, and new ways to evaluate teachers.
The deadline for the 2015 fellowships is Friday, January 16, 2015. Funding for the doctoral fellowships is provided by the Rappaport Institute and Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
