PRIMO has been designed to bring together a select group of motivated Harvard undergraduates interested in getting exposure to business research on a variety of cutting-edge ideas. The primary goal of the program is to build and foster a strong community of scholars committed to excellence in research as part of the Harvard Summer Undergraduate Research Village. Other programs in the Undergraduate Research Village include Amgen, BLISS, PCER, PRISE, and SURGH.

Now in its eighth year, PRIMO will run from June 4 - August 9, 2018. PRIMO fellows are offered Harvard campus housing, a partial board plan, modest research support, and coverage of summer savings obligations for financial aid recipients. As part of the residential community of researchers, students will participate in enrichment activities such as faculty lectures, professional development workshops, presentation opportunities, and social events.

Student applications are due on February 13. For complete application instructions, see Apply.

PRIMO is open to continuing students (rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors) who are in good standing at Harvard College. Students must commit to the full ten weeks of the program.
