Emerging Scholar Talk
The EST award is given to recognize an undergraduate who has demonstrated excellence in scholarship and speaking.
Through the Emerging Scholar Talk (EST) competition, CWiC honors students with both strong research projects and superior speaking abilities by providing those students with a public forum in which to talk about their academic work. All undergraduates are invited to apply. Qualified applicants have conducted research on their own while undergraduate students at Penn. (Co-authored research is not eligible for the EST.)
The CWiC-EST editorial board will select students to include in the series and work with 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 be recognized during the College's Student Awards Ceremony in May.
Email your questions (not your application) to Dr. Sue Weber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
