The Harvard College in Asia Program (HCAP) was founded in October of 2003 at Harvard University with the goal of fostering a mutual interest and understanding among students from Harvard and Asian universities.
HCAP serves as a platform for student exploration and development, connecting the world’s future leaders and strengthening the international relationships of tomorrow.
HCAP accomplishes this objective by sponsoring exchange conferences with top universities in Asia. In January, students from chosen partner schools come to Harvard to attend a week-long conference. In late March, students from Harvard attend conferences at our partner schools across Asia.
Both the January and March conferences include an educational component and an explorational component into the city, combining guest lectures, discussion workshops, outings, and socials.
