Additional Possible Funding Sources

Funding Opportunities

It is the responsibility of incoming Takemi Fellows to secure funding for their fellowship year. Please consult the estimated costs information located here on our website. Boston is very expensive so we encourage you to take time to ensure you have sufficient funding to cover  your year. Once accepted to the Program, we work with candidates to support their search for funding.

In the past, Fellows have had success approaching funding in the following way: 1) Employer: Funding for professional development/sabbatical year; 2) State/Government: Funding to conduct research and education abroad; and 3) Research Theme: Funding for your discipline or idea.

Many fellows have joined the Program on a Fulbright grant. PLEASE note that this requires submitting an application in the Fall one year before you would begin the fellowship. In some cases, we are able to conduct an early review of your application in order to provide a letter of support. Please email as early as possible to notify the team of your intentions.
