- Candidates for 2019 Environmental Fellowships should have received their terminal degree between May 2015 and August 2019. (Fellows must have filed their dissertation before starting their appointment in September 2019)
- Candidates with a doctorate or equivalent in any field are eligible, and they may propose research projects in any discipline. Applicants without a Ph.D. may apply if they have studied in fields where the Ph.D. is not the typical terminal degree. All successful candidates will be able to demonstrate experience performing scholarly research.
- Candidates may have received their degrees at any university in the world. Foreign nationals are eligible for fellowships, though study at Harvard requires proficiency in English.
- The fellowship includes a salary of $68,000 per year, employee health insurance eligibility, up to $2,500 reimbursement for relocation expenses, and a $2,500 annual allowance for travel and other professional expenses.
- The Harvard University Center for the Environment expects to award approximately six fellowships for the 2019 cohort. The Center will organize a co-curricular program to ensure that the fellows get to know each other and each other’s work.
- All fellows will attend biweekly dinners with their colleagues, faculty members, and guests.
Harvard University Environmental Fellowships 2019 Selection Criteria
- Applicant’s prior academic and professional success and his or her potential contribution to scholarship or practice.
- Project proposals are carefully evaluated by a committee of HUCE faculty. The proposed project should represent an independent line of inquiry, clearly extending beyond the candidate’s Ph.D. work as well as the host’s ongoing research. The relevance of the proposed work for addressing environmental issues, along with demonstration of excellent potential for intellectual achievement, are critical factors in the selection process.
