Undergraduate Program

Summer Undergraduate Program            

Undergraduate students at Harvard have an opportunity to work closely with Origins researchers across campus. Faculty and senior scientists welcome interest and involvement whether in the classroom (click here for courses) or in the lab.

Undergraduate students who graduate in the spring semester of an academic year are also eligible for the summer research opportunities. 

Research Grants
Individual grants of up to $2,000 are available for Harvard undergraduates for research during the academic year.

Applications for Summer 2021 are now Open!

Summer Research Grants
Summer Undergraduate Research Grants of up to $5,000 are available for undergraduates working in Origins member labs on Origins-related projects.

Awardees in our summer program will gain (i) the opportunity for intellectual growth in a strong supportive community of Harvard Origins faculty, researchers and peers  (ii) access to further research opportunities (iii) the opportunity to participate in workshops, seminars and activities. 

Although the need to adapt our award program was called for last year, the challenage gave way for amazing new research opportunities. Please note: Given the COVID safety requirements on campus, please visit the SEAS & FAS Division of Science: Coronavirus FAQs site for guidance and eligibility.  Students graduating in the spring of 2021 are eligile.
