The Kokkalis Fellowship aims to support the student’s tuition for the duration of their studies at the Harvard Kennedy School, including mandatory school fees (student activity fee, University Health Services fee and Blue Cross Insurance—please note that dependents are not covered), and provides a small stipend to defray the cost of living expenses.
While the Kokkalis Program encourages early applications for the Fellowship, it does not matter whether you first submit the application for the Fellowship to the Kokkalis Program or the application for the degree program to the Harvard Kennedy School. The decision regarding your application will not come earlier as a result of an early application. Please note that the application to the Kokkalis Fellowship and the application to the Harvard Kennedy School are completely separate processes. You will not be considered an application to the Kokkalis Fellowship unless you have completed both applications and their respective requirements.
You will be notified via e-mail regarding the decision of the Kokkalis Fellowship Selection Committee sometime between late March and early April.
The Kokkalis Program DOES NOT offer deferrals for the Fellowship. If a Fellowship candidate is accepted to the Kennedy School and awarded the Kokkalis Fellowship but chooses to defer enrollment to the Kennedy School, the candidate will have to re-apply for the Kokkalis Fellowship for the academic year that he/she will enroll at the Kennedy School. The candidate may not necessarily be offered the Kokkalis Fellowship after re-applying.
Candidates for the Harvard Kennedy School master's programs are encouraged to apply again for the Kokkalis Fellowship.
The Kokkalis Fellowship is highly competitive. Typically, 2-4 fellowships are awarded annually. It is therefore strongly recommended that applicants for the Kokkalis Fellowship also apply to other scholarships to support their studies at the Harvard Kennedy School. With research and commitment, applicants from the region will realize that the Kokkalis Fellowship is not the only source of financial support for study at HKS.
