Grad Talks: Passions Worth Sharing


Inspired by TED Talks and sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Life and the GSA, this colloquium features up to eight graduate students from any discipline at BC. Selected speakers present a talk between seven and ten minutes in length on a particular topic about which they are passionate, whether it be academic research, an experience abroad, a lesson learned through a life event, or anything else! The winning presenter, as selected by a panel of University judges, will receive a $500 honorarium!


The 2015 GradTalks application is CLOSED

Applicants will hear back soon with details about setting up individual interviews!

Are you looking for a way to connect with other graduate students about your passions in a smaller setting? Check out the GSA's Grad Talks Spark Series. You can apply to facilitate a conversation about your passion at some point during the academic year, or you can join a conversation that someone else has sparked.
