HALA supports a variety of projects on campus and across the region. Below we highlight our organization's main areas of focus for the upcoming year. We invite you to support these important initiatives.
Annual Latin America Career & Study Abroad Fair
This annual networking event brings together students and employers to discuss the varied organizations and professional opportunities available within and related to Latin America. Students also have the chance to learn about term-time, summer and winter programs and opportunities available in the region, as well as long-term opportunities. Previous participants have included McKinsey & Co., Cinépolis, Accion International, Peace Corps and Goldman Sachs. If your company or organization would like to participate in the Fall 2016 fair, please get in touch with us.
This event is organized in partnership with the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS), the FAS Office of Career Services (OCS), and Laspau.
Admissions Awareness for Latin America
Since the early years of our SIG, members have provided support to Harvard students and admissions staff in the recruitment of Latin American applicants to the University. Formally and informally, through partnerships with regional clubs and student organizations, we have developed basic online content in Spanish to facilitate access to information and help recruitment efforts by both students and staff across schools at Harvard. We will soon be centralizing and expanding this content on our new site, providing admissions information on all Harvard schools in Spanish and Portuguese.
