The 2013-2014 Fellowship application process has closed.
The Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard Kennedy School offers non-stipendiary fellowships to scholars conducting gender-related research in one of WAPPP's four focal areas: economic opportunity, political participation, health, and education. We welcome applications from both academics and practitioner scholars who have expertise in gender within their field of study or work.
WAPPP offers non-stipendiary fellowships to exceptional scholars who are conducting gender-related research in one of WAPPP’s four focal areas (economic opportunity, political participation, health, and education) and practitioners who demonstrate commitment to promoting gender perspectives in public policy.
By conducting research and engaging with faculty and students at Harvard Kennedy School and beyond, the fellows enrich the intellectual life of the center. In past years, the fellowship program has brought together a diverse set of people from academic and professional fields, and supported their studies related to gender. The mission of the fellowship is to support and advance academic and practitioner scholars in their gender-related research.
The Women and Public Policy Program Fellows are expected to participate actively in WAPPP seminars and to attend and present papers at other seminars relevant to their interests. Research fellows will also be expected to complete a book, monograph, scholarly article or other significant publication during their period of residence.
The Women and Public Policy Program fellowship does not offer a stipend. Office space in the WAPPP suite will be offered on a case-by-case basis. Please note in your cover letter whether or not you would like to be considered for residency.
Applicants for the Women and Public Policy Program Fellowship should submit one complete copy of the following items:
Applications must be received by WAPPP no later than February 15, 2013 for a fellowship beginning the following September. Applications for the 2013-2014 fellowship should be emailed to Megan Farwell, Research Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be reviewed by a faculty selection committee, and awards will be announced by early April. While being considered for a Women and Public Policy Program fellowship, please inform us if you receive another fellowship.
Applicants will be notified of the selection committee’s decisions by early April.
