The Harvard College Research Program (HCRP) provides funding in support
of student-initiated, independent scholarly research or creative endeavors
undertaken with guidance of a Harvard-affiliated faculty mentor. HCRP awards
advance academic experiences outside the classroom and expand opportunities
for students to work closely with faculty members. In contrast to a research
assistantship, HCRP recipients demonstrate autonomy in the development,
direction, and preparation of the overall research project. Undergraduate
students from all concentrations are encouraged to apply.
