Harvard Horizons Scholars Announced

GSAS is pleased to announce the 2015 Horizons Scholars, eight PhD students whose ideas, innovations, and insights have the potential to reshape their disciplines. These students have been selected by the Harvard Horizons initiative as representatives of the high aspirations and the extraordinary achievements of Harvard University’s PhD programs. They form the third class of the Society of Horizons Scholars, a fellowship cohort that will offer opportunities for long-lasting community, mentorship, and professional and academic growth. Over the next month, these scholars will receive in-depth mentoring on the art of effective presentation, preparing them for a campus-wide symposium on May 6, 2015 from 4:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Sanders Theatre (reception to follow).

More information about the scholars' background and research is available here.
