Help with Specific Questions

Division Administrators (or their designees) handle many of the administrative support details for visiting fellows and scientists. Please check with them for help with issues related to your fellowship or internship reward. In some cases, you can go directly to your Advisor. If you are unsure of whom to ask, contact the Fellowship Program Coordinator.


The program is open to US citizens and Non-US citizens. Applicants whose native language is not English are expected to have the ability to write and converse fluently in English. All application materials must be presented in English (foreign transcripts may be translated).

Access to the incredible computational facilities, diversity of fantastic speakers coming through town, and experts in nearly every field of astrophysics broadened my horizons dramatically, and allowed me to work on ambitious projects that may not have been feasible had I not been at the CfA. Beyond that, the cohort of postdocs formed professional and personal relationships that I will carry with me for the rest of my career.
