Graduate Program

As students consider the array of disciplines in graduate studies, the Origins Initiative provides opportunities to join a new research field and to contribute to its success. 


  • Research travel, publications and conference support is available for current Harvard graduate students pursuing thesis research on topics related to origins of life in the Universe. Non-Harvard graduate students are also eligible so long as they work at Harvard and have a Harvard visiting fellow status.
  • Interdisciplinary research opportunities and field study are available in our Graduate Consortium/Certificate Program.

If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please contact Kelly Colbourn, Associate Director at
