Frequently asked questions

I would like to speak at TEDxCUNY - how can I apply?

Please read about and fill out our speaker application here.

I know someone who could give a great TEDxCUNY talk! How can I nominate them?

Great! Please fill out the application here.

Will it help if I submit multiple nominations, or have others nominate me several times?

No. One submission is enough.

Who are you looking to have speak? What should I know before applying?

We are looking for: never-before-seen presentations, scientifically sound research, and people who have changed the world. We love people who are committed to the process, display an understanding of TEDxCUNY, and have something to offer our community. We are not looking for: advice or "coaching," or professional or semi-pro “public speakers” who have given the same talk many times. Before submitting, take a minute to think about the following:

  • What is my idea?
  • Why is this idea important?
  • What uniquely qualifies me to talk about this?

Is there a deadline for nominating a speaker?

Our application is available year-round. Speakers are selected for our Spring conferences by the end of CUNY's Fall semester. Applicants submitting nominations in the Spring will be considered for the following conference.

When will I hear back about my nomination?

TEDxCUNY is only able to contact those invited to further explore their talk idea.
