Graduate Research Fellowships

Graduate students currently enrolled at Harvard are invited to apply for fellowships for the upcoming academic year. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide the student with an opportunity to carry out research in the humanities or social sciences on a topic relating to Ukraine. Criteria for selection will include the importance of the topic, the clarity of the proposal, and the potential for scholarly contribution.

Questions may be addressed to Megan Duncan Smith, HURI Programs Coordinator, at


In addition to tuition and fees up to a combined maximum of $2,700.00, the fellowship provides a $5,300.00/semester stipend.


In most cases, fellowships will be awarded for one semester, but in exceptional cases, a full academic year fellowship may be awarded.


Graduate students in all FAS departments are invited to apply, but priority will be given to those students who have completed general exams and are either developing or writing their dissertations.
