Harvardwood Heroes

Are you involved in community service?  Apply for a $500 unrestricted grant via Harvardwood Heroes!


On behalf of Harvardwood, a Harvard University Shared Interest Group ("SIG"), I wanted to pass along the opportunity below to all of your alumni club members.

The Harvardwood Heroes program awards 2-4 grants of $500 each to Harvard students, staff, alumni, or faculty members who have demonstrated an exemplary level of commitment to community service initiatives of their choice. Applicants can work with any NPO/community service project, although priority is given to arts-related service.

The deadline to apply is April 15, 2018, and additional program details can be found here: https://www.harvardwood.org/heroes.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could pass along the details about this opportunity to your local alumni. It's free to apply, open to all (regardless of Harvardwood membership), and a great way to receive an unrestricted $500 grant in recognition of community service work!

Thank you,




Could you be a Harvardwood Hero?

The Harvardwood Heroes grant program spotlights and supports Harvard students, alumni, faculty, and staff who have made an exceptional contribution to their local communities. These Heroes exemplify the mission of Harvardwood by demonstrating the power and purpose of the arts, media, and entertainment.

Any Harvard alum can apply for a Harvardwood Heroes grant—you do not have to be a Harvardwood member. We will award $500 grants to four applicants who have demonstrated a distinguished level of service to their organizations of choice (priority given to arts-related organizations/projects and to Harvardwood members).
