Administrative Fellows Program

Is AFP appropriate for high school or college students?

No, AFP is a program designed for mid-career professionals with at least five years’ work experience. High school and transfer students interested in attending Harvard College need to apply directly to Undergraduate Admissions. The College offers an extensive need-based financial aid program for students, and so, financial considerations should never bar a student from applying. College students interested in pursuing Graduate School Admissions should check directly with the department they are interested in.

The seminar series is a supplement to the work experience. Seminars are held twice a month and feature tenured professors and high-level administrators who provide their personal insight on strategies and approaches to management and advancement in the university setting.

The salary range is generally between $55,000 and $70,000 per year depending on experience and the nature of each Fellowship assignment.   Note that Fellowships are eligible for the Harvard University benefits package and this includes vacation time and available health, vision and dental insurance.

What is the start date for Fellowships?
