Program on Science, Technology and Society at Harvard|
Undergraduate STS Essay Prize Competition
For the third year, the Program on Science, Technology, and Society (STS) based at the Harvard Kennedy School will hold a competition for Harvard undergraduates doing independent, original research on social, cultural, historical, or policy issues at the intersection of science, technology and society. Term papers and stand-alone thesis chapters are eligible for consideration. Thematically appropriate projects in non-textual media, such as films, documentaries, and design projects, will also be considered.
Videos of our 2011 winners may be seen at http://stsnext20.org/conference/poster-competition/
Interested students should submit a 100-word abstract of their work by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 29, 2013. Applicants will be informed if their abstract is accepted by April 5, 2013, with final papers or projects due April 12. Since this prize is for already completed work, interested applicants should be in a position to meet these deadlines easily.
Submissions will be evaluated by Fellows in the STS Program. The winner will receive a small cash award; two honorable mentions will also be selected. We will announce the results at a reception for those who have entered the competition at a date to be announced in late April.
