Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at Georgetown University
After 59 incredible years, Georgetown University will no longer be hosting the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium for the Washington, DC region. Georgetown faculty and staff – particularly our scientists – could no longer endorse a program that was confined to high school students in our area schools who held U.S. citizenship. Our are schools serve and are blessed by a rich diversity of students who hold passports and hail from around the world – they are children of diplomats, refugees, asylum seekers, undocumented individuals, permanent residents, green cold holders, and more. Scientific collaboration and learning is a global common good and we hope that the JSHS administration and its grantors will shift its regulations in the pursuit of a more just world.
