For COVID-19 updates and more information on our modified Graduate Horizons summer programs, please visit our News page.

In light of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and in support of preventative measures and our collective wellbeing, we are working with our Board of Directors, staff, host institutions, and partners to develop a plan to re-imagine our in-person summer program. In the coming weeks, we will update you with more specific information and plans for re-imagining our Graduate Horizons programming remotely or possibly postponing GH until 2021. I ask for your patience while the CH team develops our plan.

Please be aware that the application process will continue.
The Graduate Horizons application will remain open and applicants are still encouraged to apply.
