Harvard College students

Harvard College students are eligible to apply for funding through the Office of Career Services (OCS) if you have not previously received Harvard funding for an international experience lasting four weeks or longer, as well as a variety of centers on campus. All Harvard Summer School study abroad programs qualify for funding through the OCS Funding Application for Harvard Summer School Study Abroad Programs.

Consult the Harvard College Funding Sources Database for more information on all sources of funding. Consider dropping in for information on summer international experiences (including funding) Monday through Friday, from 1 to 4 pm, either in-person at OCS or via Gchat beginning November 3.

Deadlines. The OCS Funding Application for Harvard Summer School Study Abroad Programs is a separate application through the Centralized Application for Reaearch and Travel (CART). This application is also due January 28, 2016, at 5pm.

Also see the Harvard College Financial Aid Office summer school page for information about loan assistance.

Submitting payments
