The Harvard Trade Union Program is an intensive Five (5) week program designed for trade union leaders. It is comparable to the advanced education that Harvard University offers to executive level individuals in Business and Government.  It teaches the essential skills necessary to effectively manage and lead unions, as well as providing an incredible opportunity to explore key issues in the labor movement. 

The application period begins immediately following NSO RA and closes September 1 of any given year. Print it out in hard copy to scan or download to complete electronically. Send the completed application to: Kelley Clouser at

Do not apply directly to Harvard– NSO will send the approved tuition awarded applicants to Harvard if you awarded the tuition grant. Good Luck!
