Du Bois Scholars Program

The Du Bois Scholars Program

About the Program

The Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery initiative (H&LS) is excited to launch the Du Bois Scholars Program, a fully funded, 9-week summer research internship at Harvard College for scholars from select R2 and research-focused Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Prospective Du Bois Scholars will apply to the program by selecting the project and faculty mentor they desire to work with during the summer. Scholars will receive dedicated hands-on mentorship and gain access to a rigorous research and learning environment that fosters intellectual growth and personal development. The program will conclude with a final presentation of their research to fellow scholars, faculty mentors and teams.

Scholars will live in the Harvard residential community and participate in programming with scholars from the Harvard Summer Undergraduate Research Village (HSURV), creating relationships and experiences that will last a lifetime.

Meet the outstanding 2024 Du Bois Scholars.
