|Harvard China Student Internship Program
The 2014 Program is offered in partnership with Chinese corporations, NGOs/NPOs, and multinational companies in China. Students experience modern China through their internship placements and gain an introduction to Chinese history and culture, all while learning first-hand about life in the workplace. The structure of the program includes a nine-week internship, a week-long field trip, and numerous cultural events.
Program Dates: Saturday, June 7 to Friday, August 15, 2014
Internship Sites: Internship placements will be concentrated in Beijing, Shanghai, Changsha, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Interns will work in leading multinational and Chinese companies in various industries. Applicants should indicate the type of host organization or work they prefer,
and their experience and skills on the application form. While every effort is made to ensure that students have a satisfying experience consistent with their interests,
there is no guarantee that placements can be made with specific companies or in specific cities.
Eligibility: Returning Harvard College undergraduates from all concentrations are eligible to apply. Chinese language is not required to apply, but most of the internship positions require some knowledge of oral and written Chinese. Students must have excellent written, communication, and analytical skills. Students must be able to commit to the entire 10-week program.
How to apply: Please apply for the Internship Program through Crimson Careers:
https://harvard-csm.symplicity.com/students/, search for position ID# 51645. Students should submit a completed application by Friday, January 31, 2014.
The Harvard China Fund Cambridge staff will invite students for interviews in late February, and then notify students by the end of April 2014 of their acceptance into
the Internship Program.
Cost: Once selected, interns will be asked to pay a $2,500 program fee. Many host companies will cover airfare, housing, and provide a small,
variable stipend, but students may be placed in a host organization that does not offer full financial support. In general, NGO/NPO organizations do not provide
financial support. Some commercial organizations provide partial financial support. Therefore, HCF recommends that all eligible students apply for a grant to cover the
full program fee and other costs from the Office of Career Services' summer funding for Harvard-run summer international programs:
