Preparing Your Tanner Abstract

Tanner Abstracts

Your abstract must respond to the following questions in 150 words:

  1. What was the focus of your off-campus experience?
  2. Why was this experience a significant one, and what did it teach you about the world?
  3. How does this experience relate to your past or future academic and/or social experiences at Wellesley?
  4. What do you hope those who attend your presentation will learn?

The abstract should not read like a travelog or a day-to-day account of your summer or winter break.

Please remember that if you're planning to submit a joint application (2 to 6 people) then one abstract would be submitted on behalf of the group.
