Dean’s Scholars is a two-year program for Juniors and Seniors in the Elliott School. The application is designed for current advanced sophomore students interested in expanding their knowledge and understanding of the field of international affairs during their last two years of undergraduate study. It allows selected students to research a topic they are interested in, to interact with a variety of actors involved in the field, and to strengthen valuable communication and research skills.
Through mentorship and personalized guidance, our scholars are offered the support and tools they need to build valuable professional connections, to pursue their passion for research, and to have a positive impact in their communities. Each student will select a faculty mentor and work with their mentor throughout the two years to design and execute their project. They will also attend exclusive Dean’s Scholars events and receive support and mentorship from the Associate Director of the program.
