Join the next class of Harvard Climate Internship Program Fellows: 

In 2022, the first class of seventeen Harvard Climate Internship Program (HCIP) Fellows went to work driving climate solutions in government, business, and civil society. These students helped Boston prepare its stormwater management strategy; supported energy policy development at the UN; worked with the White House Council on Environmental Equality; and more.  

Today, the search is on for the next class of HCIP Fellows seeking to deepen their experience and forge connections in the climate policy field. Applications are currently open and graduate students across Harvard are encouraged to apply! The deadline for applications is noon, March 22, 2023.  

Apply now:

Harvard Kennedy School students should apply through the HKS Summer Funding Common Application. All other eligible Harvard Graduate students should use the online application form. 


The Harvard Climate Internship Program is open to any Harvard graduate student who will return to campus for at least one semester after completion of the grant. Students are responsible for securing their own climate-related internship with a public, private, or non-profit organization.  Both U.S.-based and international opportunities are eligible for funding. The duration of the internship must be a minimum of eight weeks between the end of the spring semester and the beginning of the fall semester. How the student schedules the time is up to the student and the host organization.  

Additionally, this program is open to students who have already lined up fully-paid summer positions. We would welcome such students to our programming and provide mentoring support even if we are not awarding them funds for their summer position.
