The 12th summer of the Harvard China Student Internship Program kicked off on June 28, 2019 in Shanghai, China with a week-long orientation and field trip. This year, the Harvard China Fund recruited 30 interns from different years and concentrations at Harvard College, and arranged placements for them in 18 host companies in multiple fields, including finance, research, consulting, biotechnology, insurance, retail and non-profit.

The students gained a comprehensive experience of China during the first week through the opportunity to participate in urban life in Shanghai and explore history and culture in Xi’an.
