CWiC Emerging Scholar Talks

CWiC’s Competition for Undergraduate Scholars

Through the Emerging Scholar Talk (EST) competition, CWiC celebrates both strong research projects and solid speaking abilities by providing students with a public forum in which to talk about their academic work. All undergraduates are invited to apply. The CWiC-EST Editorial Board will select students to include in the annual series and coach those students to hone their presentations. Because student speakers communicate their work to a broad audience, the series offers participants and audiences a chance to share ideas across disciplinary bounds. Currently, one scholar is selected each spring. The Emerging Scholar will receive a $500 award and will be recognized during the College’s Student Awards Ceremony in May. In addition, a video of the EST will be placed on the CWiC web site. Applications due January 25th!
