HWGo! Student Summer Fellowships

HWGo! Student Summer Fellowships program helps selected students extend their knowledge beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom in destinations around the world.  The Student Summer Fellowships program initiates and supports curricula and programs that

  • help students recognize how differing cultures, traditions, histories, and religions underlie views and values that may agree — or contrast — with their own
  • promote appreciation of students’ cultural and global responsibility.

The following fellowships will be awarded in their respective amounts to members of the eligible grades:

Harvard-Westlake Asia Initiative Summer Fellowship
Up to three fellowships in the amount of up to $4000 each will be awarded to Harvard-Westlake students in the spring for exploration of Asia and/or Asian culture during the ensuing summer.  Current 11th grade students may apply.  An outstanding fellowship proposal will describe a unique and immersive experience that will broaden and deepen the student’s understanding of one or more of the Asian cultures, histories, and/or societies.

Harvard-Westlake Latin-American and Iberian Studies Fellowship
Up to three fellowships in the amount of up to $4000 each will be awarded to Harvard-Westlake students in the spring for study and/or travel during the ensuing summer.  Current 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students may apply.  The Latin-American and Iberian Studies initiative supports selected students in cultural enrichment and/or global awareness activities in the Spanish-speaking world, and it extends what is taught about the Spanish-speaking world in History, World Languages, Economics, Performing Arts, and Visual Arts classes.

Harvard-Westlake Junior Summer Fellowship
A fellowship in the amount of up to $4000 will be awarded to a current 11th grade student to enable the recipient to discover and explore some area of interest during the summer between the Junior and Senior year.  An outstanding fellowship proposal will describe a unique and immersive experience that will broaden and deepen the student’s understanding of himself/herself and the world.  While this usually involves travel, that is not a requirement.
