Application Deadline: June 14th, 2019 at 16:00 CET (4:00 PM CET)

Since the late Middle Ages, the notion of the “Renaissance Man” has celebrated those people who are well-rounded, broadly knowledgeable and capable across the arts and the sciences, and able to approach problems holistically. This year marks the five hundredth year since the passing of the world’s most famous Renaissance Man: Leonardo da Vinci, the Italian polymath who simultaneously excelled as scientist, engineer, writer, artist, and musician.

Today, highly educated people tend more toward specialization, but in settings that still encourage cross-disciplinary thinking, people are more likely to …

  • Challenge outdated assumptions and conventions of thought and behavior,
  • Explore and discover new realms of artistic, physical, and intellectual achievement, and
  • Develop different and broader visions of themselves.
