Established through the generous gifts of Donald T. Regan, 66th Secretary of the Treasury, the Regan Fund supports programs that invite distinguished speakers to Harvard to present views in the fields of economics, government, and social problems of the United States and the world. Eligible programs present views that might not otherwise be available to undergraduates seeking knowledge or just curious about alternate solutions to current and future problems.
The Social Science Division seeks proposals for programs that meet the goals of the Regan Fund by bringing diverse speakers to campus to lecture to undergraduates. Proposed activities may be open to other members of the Harvard community or the public at large, but the focus must be on undergraduate students. We are particularly interested in supporting programs tied to academic courses, and/or developed in collaboration with the College. We welcome proposals from student groups, but require that a statement of faculty or departmental support accompany such proposals.
