Printer-friendly version

Participation in the program is open only to those are legally authorized to be employed by Harvard University in the United States. Most of our funding is only open to U.S. citizens or green card holders (exception: non-U.S. citizens who attend Harvard University are eligible for internal funds). If you are not a citizen or green card holder, you are still welcome to apply, but note your chances of participating in the program are very low.

International students currently attending a US school may be eligible to participate in the program if you are able to secure funding from your home institution. Harvard University will not be able to pay for any stipends, room & board, and travel costs.

International students NOT attending school currently in the US are not eligible for this program.  Harvard University is unable to assist in obtaining such employment authorization for this program and the Harvard International Office cannot answer inquiries about any individual's eligibility.
