Harvard’s Kokkalis Program on Southeastern and East-Central Europe at the Kennedy School of Government (KSG) is accepting applications for a limited number of small grants to support summer internship and/or research projects focusing on Southeast Europe. These grants aim to encourage and support Harvard students to take on summer work or research in Southeastern Europe.

Students who are currently enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, or Ph.D. programs at Harvard are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to internships/projects that are nonpaying and focus on one of the following disciplines: development (economic, sustainable, human resources, etc.), public sector reform, government, human rights, social policy, and security.

Applications must be postmarked no later than April 16. Awards will be announced approximately three weeks after the deadline. For complete information on how to apply, visit

The Kokkalis Program was established in 1997 with the aim of building bridges and networks for peace across the Balkans and between the region and the rest of the world. It is an integrated network of educational and research activities that aims to enhance the quality of democracy, prosperity, and institutional vitality in the Balkans by bringing together senior policymakers, scholars, practitioners, and students.
