Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Internship Program 2018 for Study in Harvard (Funded)

Application Deadline: Friday, February 2, 2018.

Program Dates
Monday, June 4 – Friday, August 10, 2018
The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Internship Program (HIP) provides undergraduate students with a focused and challenging summer research experience in a cutting-edge stem cell science laboratory. Interns are exposed to different professional options within the scientific arena through a stem cell seminar series, a career pathways presentation, and a weekly stem cell companion course. Students present their summer research findings, both orally and in poster format, at the HIP Symposium—a requirement of all program participants.


  • This is an UNDERGRADUATE internship program open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who express a strong interest in stem cell biology.
  • Applicants may be from Harvard or any college or university across the United States and internationally.
  • Harvard University will sponsor the visas for international students who are selected for this program.

Previous research experience in a biological laboratory is highly desirable, but not required.


  • A stipend of $4,500.00 will be provided, and this is intended to cover transportation and housing costs related to participation in this program.
  • Students, especially international students with J-1 visa requirements, will require evidence of greater personal financial resources to support their time at Harvard.
  • On-campus housing will likely be available at a cost to the participant of approximately $3,500.00. Kitchen facilities are NOT available during the summer.
  • Participants may secure private housing (e.g., sublets) on their own.
  • Meal plans are not available for HIP participants.
