Elliott Undergraduate Scholars Symposium

All members of the University Honors Program are cordially invited to this years Elliott Undergraduate Scholars Symposium on April 13th!

The Elliott School Undergraduate Scholars program is an enhanced independent research opportunity for outstanding Elliott School juniors and seniors. After months of research and writing, this year’s cohort will be presenting their work April 13th from 11:00am – 3:00pm. As members of this program, two honors program students, Shannon McKeown and Maggie Wedeman, will be presenting their research on the impact of US mediation in the Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine peace processes and Chinese discourse on non-traditional security respectively. We would love for any and all to attend, ask questions, and support us in our presentations!
