Undergrads in EPS take advantage of incredible opportunities to work with Harvard’s world-class faculty through mentored research (EPS 91) or senior thesis research projects (EPS 99). EPS students also frequently accept internships and fellowships at other leading institutions during the summer.
The EPS department believes that hands-on research is an unparalleled experience for undergraduates and allocates funding for students to work in labs and research groups during the school year and summer. Check out what some of our undergraduates have been doing during the most recent term!
Every year, EPS undergraduates present their research in departmental settings and at conferences around the world. See some of our recent conference presenters and student publications.
Learn about how to work in an EPS research group or find fellowship and internship opportunities outside of Harvard.
The EPS department provides generous support to undergraduates to conduct research, present at conferences, and spend the summer working in Cambridge. To apply for funding, speak with the Academic Program Manager (Chenoweth Moffatt) and complete the funding request forms found on the undergraduate Forms page.
For information about funding sources and excellent tips on applying, see this recording of the Summer STEM Research and Funding Panel (begins 30 minutes into the recording) presented by EPS undergrads in March 2021. You can also view the slides from the presentation.
