Carnegie Council’s first Student Research Competition

This competition will be held on Wednesday, May 20th from 12pm-2:30pm. Lunch will be served during a networking session, followed by presentations of original research by students from universities across the NYC metro area. Audience members will include students, professors, professionals, and the interested public.

Presentations will be 10 minutes long and must make a normative argument. They should be on topics related to ethics and international affairs (e.g. human rights, international law, justice, equality, accountability, sustainability, transparency, etc.).

There are a limited number of presentation slots available. In order to select the presentations, we ask that all interested candidates submit an abstract of no more than 400 words. The deadline for the abstract submission is Wednesday, April 1st.

The competition will be judged by a panel of academic and business professionals. The winner will receive a free year-long membership to the Council’s Carnegie New Leaders program.

If you are interested in competing, please email your 400 word abstract by April 1st to Jenna Zhang at
