The Cogan Family Fund
Over the summer of 2010, HHI sponsored 15 undergraduate and graduate students at Harvard University to conduct field research in international crisis affected settings through the Cogan Family Fund. The Cogan Family Fund enables students to obtain international field experience, while gaining an understanding of the complex, cross-disciplinary nature of humanitarian work. Over the past few months, students traveled to Haiti, DRC, India, Bolivia, Romania, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Nepal, Kashmir and Mozambique.
Harvard students interested in advancing research, practice, and policy in the field of humanitarian assistance are encouraged to apply by November 15, 2010 for projects to be conducted during winter break.
