The Public Scholars program provides organizations the opportunity to apply to have scholars engage current and new audiences. Public scholars deliver stand-alone presentations for 90 minutes, with 30 minutes reserved for Q&A sessions. Presentations will often explore topics with historical content and contemporary relevance. Scholars engage audiences beyond the standard lecture model, with talks that encourage curiosity and inspire a collaborative learning environment.
Public Scholars serve a two-year term, and applications are open biyearly.
