Women and Public Policy 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).
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 office space.
