The only program of its kind in North America, the Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute (HUSI) offers seven weeks of intensive accredited university instruction in Ukrainian studies. The program includes three academic courses offered through the Harvard Summer School and a weekly event series hosted by Harvard's Ukrainian Research Institute (HURI). Every summer since 1971, HUSI has brought together exceptional undergraduates, graduate students, and working professionals from around the world. The Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute provides students with the opportunity for academic advancement, career development, and membership in a diverse and interdisciplinary community of scholars that spans five decades of HUSI cohorts.
2021 Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute
June 18–August 6, 2021 | Online
In 2021, our students will join us virtually for the second year in a row. For reasons of health and safety, all 2021 Harvard Summer School courses and activities, including the Ukrainian Summer Institute, will be offered online. While we look forward to welcoming HUSI students to campus again in the future, the overwhelming success of last year’s virtual program inspires optimism for the coming summer. We are grateful to be able to include a larger cohort and many students who would not have been able to participate in an on-campus program. Please note that applications for the HUSI Scholarship are due on April 1st.
Every year, HURI grants a large number of full and partial scholarships to HUSI students. More information on the HUSI Scholarship may be found on the Enrollment page. Prospective students may read about our 2021 courses and faculty below and should review Harvard Summer School deadlines, registration instructions, and costs. HUSI students are encouraged to take full advantage of Harvard’s scholarly resources, including the digital collections of our libraries and museums. Our event series will take place weekly on Fridays at 1:15 PM (ET/Boston) and will include both public lectures and private events for HUSI students only. In the meantime, students can participate in HURI's regular events program and subscribe to HURI's mailing list.
