The Center for Public Leadership (CPL) at Harvard University seeks to recruit its next cohort of Zuckerman Fellows for the 2021-2022 academic year.
The Zuckerman Fellowship is designed to forge interdisciplinary leaders capable of solving deep-rooted public policy challenges across the sectors of business, government, and civil society. It enables students who already holding or are working toward degrees in business, law, or medicine, to also obtain a master’s degree from Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Graduate School of Education, or Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Students must be United States citizens or legal permanent residents to qualify for the Zuckerman Fellowship.
The Zuckerman Fellowship provides recipients with full tuition and health insurance fees for one year plus a living stipend, but the value proposition of the Zuckerman Fellowship extends well beyond financial support: fellows participate in an intensive leadership development program designed by the Center for Public Leadership including experiential learning opportunities; faculty and practitioner-led seminars on core leadership competencies; a renowned speaker series; and service opportunities to help them gain applied leadership skills, enrich their academic experience, and build lasting ties that help them become powerful forces for change.
To apply for the 2021-2022 academic year, students must complete two steps:
- Students must first apply for admission at Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Graduate School of Education, or Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Application deadlines vary: please consult each School’s website for respective deadlines.
Students must also apply for the Zuckerman Fellowship. The deadline for students applying at the Harvard Kennedy School is Monday, February 4, 2021. For students applying through the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, please refer to the respective school’s website.
