Harvard Horizons 2014

What’s smarter than a room full of PhD students?  Find out on April 22nd!

The Bok Center is proud to support Harvard Horizons, an initiative to showcase the research and support the professional development of PhD students at Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Mentoring for the new class of scholars kicked off last Friday and this new group forms the second class of the Society of Horizon Scholars, a fellowship cohort that will offer opportunities for long-lasting community, mentorship, and professional and academic growth.

The Harvard Horizons program culminates in a symposium, to be held April 22, 2014 from 4:15-6:00pm in Sanders Theatre.  Don’t miss this chance to see the final product of weeks of hard work, and learn about the exciting research going on across GSAS!
