Program on Science, Technology and Society at Harvard

Harvard Kennedy School of Government | Harvard University

Undergraduate STS Essay Prize Competition

Deadline extended! 

For the fourth 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 (please note: not entire theses) are eligible for consideration. Thematically appropriate projects in non-textual media, such as films, documentaries, and design projects, will also be considered.

Interested students should submit their work by email to sts@hks.harvard.edu by Monday, April 14, 2014. Since this prize is for already completed work, interested applicants should be in a position to meet this deadline 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.
