Because of the intensive nature of our programs, participants are asked to immerse themselves completely in the program curriculum and daily events. Free time at night is used to prepare for the next day's session and to mingle informally with classmates.



Unless otherwise noted in the program information, tuition covers most meals during your stay in Cambridge. An on-site catering service provides meals at Harvard Kennedy School for program participants. Please advise the program staff if you require an alternative diet. In addition, coffee and fruit will be available during the break between morning classes.
