Mentoring Student Research

The Office of Scholarly Engagement coordinates opportunities for HMS and non-HMS faculty to mentor student research.

HMS Mentors

Harvard faculty may post an opportunity for student scholarship in the OSE Opportunities Database. Your opportunity will also appear on your Harvard Catalyst faculty profile. HMS-affiliated faculty can find information about the scholarly project and mentor requirements on our internal site.

Non-HMS Mentors 

Non-HMS-affiliated faculty are invited to mentor students and should complete the same mentor agreement available to HMS faculty. Students with non-Harvard mentors are required to also have an HMS mentor who is familiar with Harvard research processes, in case HMS support is needed. Contact the Office of Scholarly Engagement to request more information and the required documentation.
