Students are invited to apply for Johns Hopkins University’s first annual Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium. This will be a new annual two-day event at our main campus in Baltimore, Maryland and it will offer students across the country the chance to disseminate their humanities research on a national scale. Our event will be this spring, April 3rd and 4th, 2020 and our application portal is now open.

This symposium is open to undergraduate students from any two-year or four-year college or university who would like to present their original scholarship in the humanities. We hope to have 400 participants this year and will also be offering a select number of travel grants to help students afford participation. In addition to the multiple panels of student papers and presentations (including original creative works), we will also have a wonderful keynote delivered by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anthony Doerr and multiple professional development panels featuring graduate students and faculty in our humanities departments and centers. Students studying all areas of the humanities are welcome to attend.
