Summer Opportunities for Harvard Students

In summer 2017, DRCLAS is pleased to offer structured internship and immersion programs and opportunities in the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Panama, and Peru. Since 2005, more than 1,000 Harvard students have participated in DRCLAS programs in Latin America. Continuing Harvard College students in good standing with a minimum of intermediate Spanish or Portuguese are eligible, unless otherwise noted on the individual program page. All concentrations may apply. 

Students interested in and eligible for funding from the Office of Career Services (OCS) may indicate this on the DRCLAS Summer Programs Application Supplement Form, and do not need to apply separately for OCS funding. Students that are no longer eligible for OCS funding may still be eligible for a DRCLAS partial fee-waiver. Please review the funding section carefully when completing your online application.
