You can make a world of difference to a Harvardwood student this summer!
The Harvardwood Travel Fund enables Harvard students participating in the Harvardwood Summer Internship Program (HSIP) to travel to/from events hosted by the program throughout the summer. Many students interning in Los Angeles do not have access to a car, and the travel funds go strictly toward ridesharing or public transportation expenses to attend events hosted by Harvardwood or one of our industry partners.
Even a $10 donation can make a difference!
Our goal is $1500 by July 1, and we can't get there without your help!
"I am a junior in Kirkland House studying Sociology and VES. This summer, I was able to attend numerous Harvardwood events in the LA area, including a private tour of Elon Musk's SpaceX facility, a visit to Lin Pictures [now Rideback] - the creators of the Lego Movie and It, and an alumni event in which I was able to share the room with numerous Harvard alumni working in the entertainment industry. Being a member of the Harvardwood community has allowed me to have the opportunity to meet with a handful of very powerful and influential individuals in entertainment who have shown me the true reality of what the industry is really like, and what to expect when looking for jobs in the future."
