The Harvard Global Health Institute (HGHI) offers returning Harvard undergraduates in good standing the opportunity to participate in paid summer research and internship placements on the Harvard campus as well as across the world. These opportunities are a minimum of eight weeks long and connect classroom knowledge and skills to the complex issues in the field. They range from placements in laboratories and research groups, to field work with hospitals and community health clinics, to office-based internships with NGOs and international organizations. Students may also apply to HGHI for funding for their own projects or internships. There are four categories of opportunities within the program: SURGH, ISURGH, DGHI, and Independent Funding.
