Get Engaged 2017: Student Action and Youth Leadership: Civic Engagement, Social Entrepreneurship and the Liberal Arts


*APPLICATION DEADLINE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27TH, 2016*

The Bard/HESP Network (Higher Education Support Program of the Open Society Foundations) and affiliated institutions will gather student leaders for a five-day conference at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary from March 18th to 25th, 2017. Students actively engaged in community based work (on and off campus), including community projects or organizing, activism, journalism, Model UN, debate, socially based internships, government work or campus leadership, or who are in the early stages of launching a project are invited to submit proposals.

The conference is not a traditional academic conference: it is a venue to build a network of young social entrepreneurs and change agents to encourage future collaborations and exchange of ideas. Participants will explore best practices, generate ideas, participate in leadership trainings, and network with other student leaders.

Decisions will be announced on or around December 14th.
