Gear up for INSPIRE 2017!

October 7, 2016

Eager to share your passion for the humanities, arts, and social sciences? So are we! MIT INSPIRE is in its third year of providing a national forum for you to present your perspectives, knowledge and research skills.

This year, INSPIRE’s final round will be held April 10 -12, on MIT’s campus! Finalists will have the opportunity to meet with MIT faculty, explore our campus, and hear from peers about their research.

If you haven’t yet started your project, it is not too late to begin now. From economics to literature, history, or media, explore any area that you’re deeply passionate about and teach us something new! Pick a global, societal, or local issue, find a mentor, and just dive in!

As for the application process, we have now posted the Forms and the Handbook. Participating takes only four steps:

  • Submit your Intent To Participate form by November 30, 2016
  • Create an Abstract: Due December 31, 2016
  • Write a Research Report: Due December 31, 2016
  • Submit the Approval and Attestation form: Due Dec. 31, 2016

We are also announcing an exciting new addition for 2017 – the INSPIRE Shakespeare Blog Award. It is open to all participants who would like to blog about their research journey and reflections. It is completely optional. Whether you are an avid blogger or completely new at blogging, consider submitting your blog for this award.
