Join current students and alumni of the Elliott School's Dean's Scholars Program for a virtual networking event. Formerly known as Undergraduate Scholars, the Dean's Scholars Program is now more than 10 years old and boasts over 160 alumni participants. Take this opportunity to meet the current student scholars to learn about their research and connect with former alumni participants to learn about their careers and how the scholars program helped in their lives after graduation. Small breakout rooms will be utilized.  

The Dean’s Scholars is a two-year program for Juniors and Seniors in the Elliott School. The program 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.
