About the Fellowship
Harvard graduate students will be competitively selected for Bloomberg Harvard summer fellowships. Beginning in June 2019, students will complete a 10-week summer fellowship in domestic and international city governments on an issue of salience to the mayor’s agenda. Fellows will be supported by the Initiative’s dedicated staff during their engagement. This year, the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative is proud to offer 17 summer fellowship positions. Fellows will be awarded a stipend of $8,500, plus round-trip travel to their fellowship city.
2019 summer fellowship applications will open on Monday, January 28, at which time interested students will be able to review the list of cities and their project descriptions. Students will be able to apply to up to three projects.
This fellowship is open to all Harvard graduate students, including 2019 graduates and international students. Ideal candidates demonstrate strong written and verbal communication skills, possess an entrepreneurial spirit and comfort with ambiguity, have a proven ability to collaborate on teams, and possess strong analytical, data analysis, and creative problem solving skills.
Applications are due by Monday, February 11 at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
