Please note: Due to COVID-19, plans for program offerings beyond May 2021 have not been finalized. In spring 2021, based on University and public health guidance, each school will announce in-person or online plans for programming beyond May 2021. You may still apply to programs beyond May 2021 now, but you will not receive a decision until later in the year.
The Harvard Senior Administrator Fellowships for Executive Education allow qualifying staff to participate in the University’s Executive Education and Continuing Education programs, often at no cost.*
Harvard’s Executive Education programs attract accomplished leaders from around the globe who come to learn from our renowned faculty and each other, while addressing their strategic challenges. Program topics include leadership, negotiation, management, strategy, and operations. Eligible staff are encouraged to apply for a fellowship in an area that will advance their thinking and professional practice.
Eligibility and Application Process
For 2021, there are currently 40 placements available to Harvard staff grades 60 and above with at least two years of service (we may add additional slots later in the year once summer and fall programming plans have been finalized). To apply, you must complete the application and indicate the program to which you are applying.
