SUMMER 2021: Harvard College Undergraduates may participate in on-campus laboratory research. Please refer to the Mentored Research Policy for Summer 2021 for the full policy, including relevant information for international students and students on leave of absence.
The College has published the Summer 2021 Funding Policy. Students are permitted to take Harvard funding to support one Summer experience (for example, internship, research, summer study), regardless of duration of time. Students who are taking the Harvard Summer School Tuition waiver may not take another source of Harvard funding to support a second Summer experience. Please be sure to read the full text of the policy for all pertinent information!

News about COVID-19
Harvard College is committed to the health, safety, and wellbeing of our students, wherever your intellectual pursuits may lead you. As always, undergraduate students and post-baccalaureate fellows traveling abroad with Harvard sponsorship must adhere to the College’s international travel policy, which sets forth certain conditions and restrictions for travel to elevated-risk and high-risk destinations. Additionally, and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, the College will adhere to all travel directives from the Office of the Provost when awarding travel grants. The COVID-19 outbreak is evolving daily, and we simply cannot predict what may occur in the next few weeks and months. Government agencies as well as Harvard may impose new requirements if warranted by changing public health circumstances. No funding will be awarded for travel to any destination under Provostial restriction, and Harvard may rescind sponsorship of previously-approved planned travel if warranted prior to your departure. We recognize the uncertainty of the situation and we encourage you to be as flexible as possible with your spring and summer travel. As needed, the Harvard College office or center awarding funding will work with affected students to determine possible alternative plans. Review the COVID-19 travel advice.
The Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (URAF) serves Harvard College students as well as faculty and administrators across the university as the primary source of information about undergraduate research and prestigious scholarships at Harvard and beyond.
