Research grants available through the Schlesinger Library

The Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study is currently accepting applications for the Carol K. Pforzheimer Student Fellowships. Intended to encourage Harvard College students to use the resources of the Schlesinger Library, the fellowship awards $100 to $2,500 to cover research expenses, or support in lieu of summer employment, to enable the recipient to pursue research in the library’s collections.

Preference will be given to applicants whose topics deal with the history of community service, volunteer work, the culinary arts, health, or work and the family. The research may be related to a project for which academic credit is given, but that is not necessary.

The application deadline is April 1, and non-U.S. citizens should contact the library regarding visas and other required paperwork prior to applying. For more information, visit

Arts First volunteers needed for four days of fun, festivities

Organizers of Arts First – Harvard’s four-day celebration of music, theater, dance, and visual arts – seek volunteers for the Performance Fair on May 7. Stage managers, backstage crew members, and audience greeters are all needed. No experience is necessary for many of the jobs, and the entire University community is welcome. Volunteers will receive an Arts First T-shirt, and an invitation to a “thank-you” party hosted by Office for the Arts Director Jack Megan.

For more information, contact Ingrid Schorr, Performance Fair producer, at, or (617) 495-8699
