China's Environmental Challenges 2018: Summer Undergraduate Research Assistantships in China

The Harvard-China Project on Energy, Economy, and Environment, based at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), will provide generous financial support for six Harvard undergraduates to spend the summer in China conducting research on China's energy and environmental future under the guidance of an English-speaking professor at a leading university, from June 15 to August 16, 2018. The research topics, ranging from groundwater contamination and carbon trading to algae-based carbon capture and solar PV production, are listed on our website. Join us for a Q&A session where Harvard-China Project staff and a participating Tsinghua University professor will be available to answer questions about the research assistantship program.

Financial Support

All students accepted into the program will automatically receive generous financial support, which will cover round-trip airfare to and from China, accommodation expenses, etc. A nominal stipend will also be included. Summer savings will be covered.


All current Harvard undergraduate students are eligible to apply; however, priority will be given to rising juniors and seniors. Because of the nature of the research topics, concentrators in ESPP, EPS, ESE, and other sciences and engineering, and Economics will have an advantage, but we welcome applications from all concentrations. No knowledge of Chinese language is required.
