Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations 2018

Asia’s astounding growth over the past decade has not been without challenges. The 2017 Harvard Conference will offer a platform to cooperatively confront emerging challenges in Asia through dialogue and exchange that transcend geographical and cultural borders. The financial aid application deadline coincides with the regular application deadline on December 9th, 2017 at 11:59PM EST. 

The HPAIR Harvard Conference brings together 300 attendees from the world’s top universities and 100 speakers to discuss the most pressing issues in the Asia-Pacific region. Delegates will also get to attend exclusive social events, including formal Opening and Closing ceremonies, an International Night where they can share their cultural heritage through performances, and an Entertainment Night where they can meet other delegates in an informal setting. This year’s Harvard Conference will also feature HPAIRx, an opportunity for delegates to present short TED-style talks to share personal stories that will enlighten and inspire.

One of HPAIR’s primary goals is to enable as many accepted delegates as possible to attend conferences. HPAIR offers merit- and financial need-based scholarships to accepted delegates. Each of the scholarships will waive the registration fee and guarantee on-campus housing. Limited potential for awarding a capped travel reimbursement exists based on level of need.

In order to apply for scholarships, candidates must first complete HPAIR’s general conference application. Submission of the general conference application will grant you access to the Scholarship application.

  • Prospective and current undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply to the HPAIR conferences;
  • Recent college graduates who obtained an undergraduate or a graduate degree in the the past 5 years are also eligible to apply to HPAIR conferences;
  • Candidates of any nationalities are eligible to apply.
