The Harvard College BLISS program is a summer residential program for Harvard undergraduates designed to provide a formative and substantive social science research experience and to promote community, creativity, and academic excellence. During the ten-week program approximately 18 students work full time on social science research projects led by Harvard faculty. Students live in one of the Harvard Houses as part of the Harvard Summer Undergraduate Research Village, engaging with fellow undergraduates in an array of programs who are conducting research in fields ranging from art history to astrophysics, from data science to philosophy, from organizational behavior to public health. BLISS covers the housing costs and provides partial board, a stipend for expenses, and coverage of summer savings obligations for financial aid recipients; it also provides academic and professional development programming for the student fellows (including lectures and discussions with distinguished faculty and professionals in a wide variety of fields, practical seminars, and a chance to present their research publicly), as well as a host of social activities. Faculty project descriptions are posted on this website in January, and the student applications are due in mid-February.
