Summer Undergraduate Research Experiences in Energy and Environment
Spend your summer addressing some of the most interesting and important energy and environmental issues of our time!
The Harvard University Center for the Environment’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fund provides financial support for student research experiences related to a broad spectrum of energy and environmental topics and issues. The Fund offers two types of support for Harvard undergraduate students:
Research Assistantships allow students to participate in structured summer research experiences under the guidance of a Harvard faculty member. Students interested in a research assistantship position should identify an assistantship opportunity of interest to them on the program website, and contact the faculty member sponsoring the assistantship to discuss their eligibility.
Independent Research opportunities support original student-driven environmental research in conjunction with a Harvard faculty advisor, usually with the goal of supporting a student thesis project. Applicants should discuss and develop a research project with a faculty advisor prior to submitting an application.
In the context of the program, 'environment' refers to understanding the relationships and balances of the natural and constructed world around us, with a particular emphasis on understanding how anthropogenic activities and policies affect the environment, including the intimate relationships between energy use and demand, environmental integrity and quality, human health, and climate change.
Awards for summer research opportunities are applied towards summer living expenses, travel expenses related to research activities, and minor research expenses (for independent research projects) for up to 10 weeks.
Application deadline is March 26, 2019.
