Financial Matters


The current stipend for the academic year is $57,500 and is considered taxable income. Health insurance and child care costs are not covered by the program.


There are no costs to Fellows for auditing regular classes at Harvard and MIT.


The Fellowship strives to provide housing for Fellows and their families coming from outside the Boston/Cambridge area. Our housing options include both individual apartments and shared housing with communal space.  The accommodations are modestly furnished and conveniently located close to the Graduate School of Design.

Travel Grants

A travel grant issued during the fall semester covers approximately one economy class round trip home per semester. The travel grants are considered taxable income.
