The Horizons Fellowship
The Horizons Fellowship supports 150 outstanding university students in their pursuit to become leaders in technology. Our tuition-free programs provide immersive software engineering and web/mobile development courses geared towards high-achieving college students. Students need not have a computer science background! Our curriculum, developed by ex-Salesforce and Optimizely engineers alongside PhD candidates in computer science, is designed to teach students how to build web, mobile, and desktop applications.

Horizons students have gone on to receive offers from firms such as Google, Slack, Yelp, Amazon, BCG, Visa, J.P. Morgan, and more

Past Horizonites have come from a variety of schools and backgrounds. Students have hailed from Harvard, Princeton, Yale, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, Northwestern, Brown, Michigan and more. We’ve welcomed National Math Olympiad winners, USA Computing Olympiad participants, renowned college entrepreneurs, students with perfect SAT/ACT scores, talented designers, photographers, and more as part of our previous cohort.

Ohio State Journal of Politics and International Affairs Call for Papers

The Ohio State University Journal of Politics & International Affairs (JPIA) is seeking qualified student submissions to be published in the Fall 2017 issue.

JPIA is a student-run journal that publishes papers written by undergraduate students in the areas of Political Science, International Studies, Economics, Public Affairs, Sociology, and related fields. Publication in the Journal is an opportunity to reach a wider audience outside of the class, as well as a learning experience through the editing and feedback process.

We seek to publish high quality papers that address current events and relevant subjects in the area of politics and international affairs. Ideal submissions are both informative and argumentative, with well-developed theses and strong mechanics.

The Journal typically publishes original research, theses, and essays written for upper-level courses although all majors and class ranks are invited.

If this opportunity is of interest to you, we highly encourage you to submit a paper for publication on our website at

The deadline is October 13th, 2017, and submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis. We have recently updated our submission guidelines, which can be found here:, and ask you to carefully review them before submitting.
