Harvard Magazine provides Harvard undergraduates with opportunities to develop their writing and editing skills alongside our staff by offering two Ledecky Fellowships and one Steiner Fellowship.

Ledecky Fellowships

Jonathan J. Ledecky

The Berta Greenwald Ledecky Undergraduate Fellowship program, supported by Jonathan J. Ledecky ’79, M.B.A. ’83, and named in honor of his mother, enables the magazine to appoint two undergraduates to the editorial staff each academic year. The fellows write the “Undergraduate” column that appears in each issue, report and file news stories and short features, contribute to harvardmagazine.com, and learn the workings of a magazine through a broad range of other editorial tasks. Although former fellows have pursued a diverse array of careers, many remain professionally engaged in writing and editing at publications such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal, in the electronic media, or as authors of books.
