Winter Break Internships (Winternships) are unpaid internship opportunities that take place during the Harvard Winter vacation in the month of January. Winternships can range in length from one to four weeks and be either part-time or full-time.
Organizations generally post opportunities in October and November. Harvard offers on-campus housing for students participating in public service internships during Winter Break. The Office of Career Services offers very limited stipends to offset some travel and transportation costs. Most students choose to return to their home cities or remain in Boston. To be eligible for winter housing, students must submit a housing application form. This form will be posted in early September.
