The Harvard Horizons Program is a professional development opportunity that features and supports the extraordinary researchers who make up Harvard’s PhD community. Each year, eight outstanding PhD candidates are chosen as Harvard Horizons Scholars and receive in-depth, personalized mentoring and coaching designed to enhance their presentation skills. The program culminates in the Harvard Horizons Symposium, where Horizons Scholars deliver brief, compelling talks about their research from the Sanders Theatre stage.
