Apply to the Harvard China Student Internship Program - Summer 2015 (deadline extended!)

January 5, 2015

Deadline: Friday, February 6, 2015

The 10-week program is offered in partnership with Chinese corporations, NGOs/NPOs, and multinational companies. Students experience modern China through their internship placements and gain an introduction to Chinese history and culture, all while learning first-hand about life in the workplace. Returning undergraduates from all concentrations are eligible, Chinese language is not required to apply, but almost all of the positions require some knowledge of oral and written Chinese. 

*Please note that the deadline to apply has been extended due to the changes during the recent new CARAT transition*

The Harvard China Fund exists to advance the University's engagement with China. Established in late 2006, the Harvard China Fund is Harvard University’s “academic venture fund” for China. In service of the entire University, it supports teaching and research on China and promotes Harvard’s presence in China. The University has allocated $15 million to support the Fund, and has made a commitment to raise $50 million in the long term.

"Knowledge and education are the world’s most valuable resources. As we move deeper into the 21st century, greater China will play an increasingly important role on the global higher education stage, offering exceptional cultural and academic opportunities for Harvard faculty and students from across the University. Embracing these opportunities and engaging with individuals and institutions across the region is essential to ensuring that our teaching and our research continue to shape the future." - President Drew Faust, Harvard University
