This application is now closed.

The Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS), in partnership with the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES), is accepting applications for its joint Harvard Summer Stay in Washington, DC initiative. This opportunity is open to Harvard College students impacted by the war in Ukraine and who wish to live in Washington, DC for the summer (between May 20-August 20). Accepted students will receive a travel grant of $650, a $500/month allowance for incidentals, shared accommodation at the Center for Hellenic Studies’ DC campus, and weekday lunches.

Students should have academic interest in political science and/or European/Hellenic Studies, a summer project that can be conducted remotely from CHS, or a summer position in Washington, DC.  Limited assistance is available to also help students secure a summer work/research opportunity in DC.  An introduction to CHS and CES, occasional discussions with local affiliates and visits to local think tanks and European embassies may also be organized for the group; however students will have substantial independence and this initiative will not include daily structured programming.

To apply, please visit the link below. The application will request your CV and a cover letter (200-250 words) that highlights your academic interests, explains your summer work/research plans and any request for assistance you may require for securing a summer work/research opportunity.
