For the second year, our alumni organization has partnered with HUWIB to raise money to provide an HUWIB undergraduate seeking a career in a traditionally unpaid field (and with demonstrated financial need) with a grant to help her partake in this internship.
Many Harvard organizations provide grants such as these but generally they are not student-run organizations. Those of us who benefited from a summer grant while at Harvard know these grants can be the difference between choosing the internship you are most interested in/passionate about and choosing the one that is economically feasible. This program helps eliminate this choice for the recipient. It would be a huge achievement for us to harness our alumni power and give back to HUWIB and Juliet – we hope we can count on you to raise the $1,500 that we have pledged by August!
Whether it’s $10 or $100, every donation helps and donating online is easy: visit our donations page to make your contribution. Plus, since HUWIB Alumni, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your donation will be tax deductible and 100% of the proceeds will go towards the summer grants!

From the entire board – thank you and we can’t wait to share this year’s results with you!
