OCS Grant Application for Independent Internships and Volunteer Opportunities

This grant is made up of several funds, including the David Rockefeller International Experience Grant, which is a need-based grant aimed at students who have not previously received Harvard international funding. Also included is the Weissman International Internship Program Grant, for students who have obtained their internships independently and not through a structured program. Last year OCS funds partially or fully supported about 150 Harvard College students to pursue international internships, service, goal-related travel, and research assistantships.
