Stanford GSB Rising Scholars Conference

Join us for the inaugural Stanford GSB Rising Scholars Conference on October 27 and October 28, 2020 for diverse PhD and postdoctoral students from across the country to present their work and interact with faculty at Stanford GSB and from other institutions.

Participants will have an opportunity to discuss research across fields, learn from diverse academic leaders, and network with colleagues across the country. The objectives of the conference are to help rising scholars gain research insights, valuable exposure, and faculty mentorship that will benefit them for years to come.

Stanford GSB strongly encourages participation from underrepresented groups such as Black PhD students and postdocs, as well as from others whose backgrounds and experience would bring additional dimensions to the educational experience. We strongly believe in the value of diversity (broadly defined) in the pursuit of our educational mission.
