To the Harvardwood community:
We know you've all been receiving multiple communications from both the University and alumni interest groups about the COVID-19 outbreak, so we'll keep this short. All Harvardwood-organized events through the end of this month have been cancelled until further notice. Please check our website for additional updates about upcoming events.
Many Harvard alumni have asked how we can support current students who are experiencing hardship due to the sudden closure of campus. You can contribute directly to a fund created by the First Generation SIG that provides financial support for these students here.
As you know, Harvardwood provides internship opportunities for current students and young alumni every summer through our Harvardwood Summer Internship Program. These students often need additional support with their housing and transportation expenses. At this time, we do not anticipate the current disruption of production to affect this program, but we will be in communication with all students and alumni who are participating to notify them of any changes. In the meantime, if you would also like to contribute to the HSIP housing and transportation fund for our students, you can do so here.
The greater Harvard community has demonstrated leadership and compassion during this unprecedented crisis affecting our communities. We are proud to continue serving our members, volunteers, and key stakeholders during this difficult time.
The Harvardwood Board
