Mission

The Administrative Fellowship Program (AFP) exists to provide exceptional, highly motivated professionals an opportunity to broaden their professional experience through a work and study fellowship program at Harvard.

Under the direction of Harvard's Office of the Assistant to the President (H-OAP) for Institutional Diversity and Equity and in cooperation with participating schools and departments, the program seeks to attract talented professionals to Harvard while also enriching their personal and professional development. Through the fellowship program, H-OAP has designed opportunities for the University to engage issues of difference and inclusion while creatively diversifying its administrative workforce and professional community.

To this end, AFP offers program participants a rich administrative work experience complemented by an innovative leadership education and professional development program. At the same time, the program provides University sponsors and mentors a unique opportunity to perform and deepen their commitments in nurturing work environments that value diversity and inclusion throughout the Harvard community.
