Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development Summer Fellowships

The Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development hosts summer fellowships that support the priorities of Native nations and help students learn about, and contribute to the advancement of, good tribal governance. Because Native nations are active in all aspects of self-determined governance, they often have to develop expertise in a comprehensive set of policies and departments to address: access to resources; the persistence of economic barriers that hinder the advancement of tribal nations and individuals; development of tribal codes and regulations; interactions with non-tribal jurisdictions such as states, and the federal government; the need to nurture tribal culture and traditions; and a range of other concerns that are essential to the strengthening of native nations.  

This fellowship is open to all Harvard graduate students, including those graduating in 2022. Summer fellows will receive a stipend of $8000 to cover travel, living, and other expenses. 

Applications are now closed for 2022.
