International Summer Undergraduate Research in Global Health (I-SURGH) internships offer students the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge global health research in an international setting. Throughout the summer, students work with a Harvard faculty member or affiliate on their research projects and have a local mentor who supervises their daily work.
Students in I-SURGH receive a stipend to cover travel costs to and from their site, living expenses, and local transportation. Unfortunately HGHI cannot cover the summer savings requirement for I-SURGH students who are on financial aid. While all returning Harvard College undergraduates are eligible to apply, preference is given to sophomores and juniors. The deadline to apply is: Sunday, February 3rd at 11:59pm. Please see the Application Instructions for further details.
