The Next Generation of Harvard Horizons Scholars

Who will be the next 8 Harvard Horizons Scholars?

The goal of Harvard Horizons is to highlight the most innovative research of Harvard’s PhD students and to provide training and tools for communicating the substance of academic work to a broad audience.   Applications for the 2014 class of Horizons Scholars open December 2!

Selected students can expect:

–       To build their professional skills in targeted mentoring sessions with faculty and professionals from the Bok Center and across campus

–       To find their voices as scholars

–       To build community with peers across fields in GSAS

–       To take the stage at Sanders Theater in April!

Are you interested? The Bok Center supports Harvard Horizons, and is happy to announce two open workshops (drop- in to either one) in November aimed to get you thinking about your research and how to communicate it!  Come to “Beyond the Horizon: Communication Essentials for PhD Students” to find out more about Harvard Horizons, learn some essential skills for communicating your research, and get a taste of the professional development opportunities available at the Bok Center.

These workshops (attend either one!)  will be held on November 7th and 15th from 4-6pm at the Derek Bok Center (rooms 316 and 317 in the Science Center) and in addition to the great opportunities to workshop, we will serve food and cold beverages.  Hope to see you there!
