Undergraduate Research and Learning Opportunities

Harvard University

Students are welcome to contact individual faculty members or see the Student Job Opportunities page to learn about opportunities within the department. Broader opportunities for study, travel, and public service (both on- and off-campus) are adminstered by the Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships.

The Harvard University Center for the Environment posts summer research opportunities and provides financial support for projects related to the environment. Funding for oceanography-related programs may be available from the Harvard Oceanography Committee. In addition, Harvard students of any concentration may apply for the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies Summer Internship Program in Japan

If you need help crafting an email to a faculty member about research opportunities, please see this email template.

For information about funding sources and excellent tips on applying for research funding, 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.
