Harvard Summer School 2023
Apply for Harvard Summer School 2023!
Are you interested in taking part in Harvard’s Summer School Programme?
We’re supporting the educational aspirations of Care Experienced people by offering two of our members aged 16 – 18 a chance to study at Harvard University this summer.
Starting on Saturday 17th June 2023, participants will spend seven weeks on the Harvard campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA (just north of Boston). Here, you will get the opportunity to study two university-level academic programs, from a selection of over 200 expert-led courses, at one of the oldest educational institutions in America.
On top of that, you will be immersed into campus life and social activities. Ensuring, you have someone to share the experience with, you will share a room with another Summer School student. All your meals will be provided for you in the Harvard dining room halls alongside the other Summer School students. There will also be social and sporting activities and a chance for you to explore Cambridge, Boston and perhaps even travel further afield.
Who Cares? Scotland has been involved in the Harvard Summer School Program for more than ten years. This means you can be sure to be well supported during your time on the programme by the summer school staff while taking in all the new opportunities and experiences.
