A new generation...
The Galbraith Scholars program brings together a new generation of scholars and leaders—college sophomores, juniors, and seniors from across the country—who seek to apply themselves to important social problems.

During their week at Harvard, Galbraith Scholars attend a variety of seminars, panel discussions, off-site trips, and other activities designed to introduce participants to social policy research, graduate school, and career options through which they might make a difference.
