NEW MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION (MAY 2013)
We are migrating our website to the new address: harvardclubnevada.org
Please join us on the new website to enjoy increased functionality and new resources. To utilize the new website, alumni and non-alumni members must set up an account through the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA).
The new website does not have credit card functionality, yet, so members are still welcome to submit their dues and donations by mail.
Memberships run on an academic-year calendar, starting from September 1st through August 31st. Although we solicit memberships twice a year, you only need to sign up once. However, donations to the programs and scholarship funds are welcome anytime! Membership funds and your donations allow us to provide programs for the students in our community and scholarship opportunities for Nevada students enrolled at Harvard.
Thank you for your interest in joining with the Harvard Club of Nevada. Please call on any us if you wish to apply your interests or energies to our continuing efforts.
To keep informed of current club events, you can visit our new blog for the latest announcements.
Harvard Prize Book Award Ceremony
Our most popular annual event is the Spring Reception and Prize Book Award Ceremony. Outstanding high school students across Nevada are invited to submit applications with essays for this recognition award.
Under the stewardship of Claire Stuart Roth ’74, the Spring Reception has become one of the hallmark college events in the community. We encourage all alumni, parents and friends, whether they are active members or not, to either sponsor, assist with implementing, or attend this wonderful occasion. Details of the event and opportunities to assist are mailed to area alumni in the spring.
Become an Undergraduate Admissions Interviewer
Would you like to be an undergraduate admissions interviewer? We invite all Harvard degree holders to join the Schools & Scholarship Committee and learn what it takes to become an effective admissions interviewer.
Interviewing requires about five hours of training and also requires attendance to at least one local college fair or schools’ event each year. Because the competition at selective institutions, such as Harvard, has increased dramatically over the past few years, committee members participate in activities and ongoing training sessions to keep themselves well informed of admissions trends and current admissions qualifications.
Harvard Summer Community Fellowship Program
The Harvard Club of Nevada especially needs assistance with our Summer Jobs Program. We need you, or your business, to help find or fund summer jobs or internships for current undergraduate students. Harvard students make great employees and appreciate your support. Please contact us if you have resources, connections, job openings, or information that can be passed along to worthy students.
