Student Organization Grants (Undergraduate and Graduate)

The Asia-related centers at Harvard University offers grants to undergraduate and graduate student organizations for projects involving individual countries or spanning multiple countries in Asia. These grants are offered on an ongoing basis; however organizations are encouraged to apply as early as possible as funds are limited. Harvard undergraduate and graduate student groups should apply using the common Asia-related Centers application form. Please see below attached PDF application.
