Penn Grad Talks are a series of TED Talk-style presentations by Penn Arts & Sciences graduate students representing the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and professional master’s programs. Up to five finalists in each category have been selected to speak at the 2023 edition. Judges will select winners in each category to receive a $500 cash prize.
