Welcome

The Harvard Club of Cape Cod is an active, growing Club with a long history back to 1948 that offers diverse events of interest to our membership. Each season, the Club's activities begin in September, continuing with events each month until our Annual Meeting in June, with additional activities in the summer. Each meeting features a presentation by a Harvard faculty member, by a local leader or of special interest to the community. Members of other Harvard Clubs and Shared Interest Groups are welcome to join us at Club events. Click CALENDAR above for information on events.

We have over 300 members who have been associated with Harvard College, Radcliffe College, and the graduate schools of Harvard University. We also welcome spouses of members, and parents of students and graduates to join the Club as associate members.

Members are encouraged to contribute to summer fellowship and scholarship programs in whatever amount they can afford. The summer fellowship brings one or more Harvard students to work for the summer at a Cape community service organization. The scholarship program benefits graduates of the Cape's secondary schools. We also participate in Harvard's interviewing process and book award program, and we welcome prospective students to celebrate with us as our guests at the Club's Annual Meeting.

As a participant in the HAA Global Pass program, the Harvard Club of Cape Cod welcomes members of all other participating Global Pass Clubs to attend our events.

Get Involved

We are always looking for people with ideas for Club events and who are willing to help plan them. If there is interest, please contact any of the Club officers or Executive Committee Members.

Community Service Survey

Thank you to all who participated in the survey. Click here to view the results.

Summer Fellowship

The club supports a summer fellowship program in which one or more Harvard students spend a summer on Cape Cod helping a community service organization.

This year, Katrina Malakhoff, a graduate of Barnstable High School, is at Mass. Audubon in Wellfleet assisting in research and monitoring of diamondback terrapins. Her contributions will be, "As part of this project, I will help conduct a mark-recapture survey of the threatened diamondback terrapins in the sanctuary. I will also compile data from the monitoring surveys and mine the 30+ years of data in order to perform statistical assessments of the protection program’s success."
