Each year the Kokkalis Program welcomes applications from students currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs across Harvard University for a limited number of small grants to be used towards non-paying (or low-paying) summer internship and/or research projects, located in or concerning Southeast Europe (Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Kosovo, FYR of Macedonia, Greece, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and or Turkey.)
Priority will be given to public sector internships/projects in the following fields: development (including economic, sustainable, or human resource); government; human rights; social policy; and security.
The grants aim both to encourage and support work experiences or research that complements students’ academic work, and to promote summer work experience and research in Southeastern Europe. The awards are intended to allay expenses directly related to the project (i.e. travel to the internship site, housing, daily transportation, etc.) Students must locate and secure internships before applying for funding.
Please also note that upon completion of the projects, grant recipients will be required to provide the Kokkalis Program with a written report that summarizes their internship/research experience.
The application for next summer will be posted later in the year.
