The application for the 19th Annual UW Undergraduate Research Symposium is now open! The Symposium will be held on May 20, 2016 in Mary Gates Hall.
The Symposium is a celebration of undergraduate accomplishments in research, scholarship, and creative expression in all academic disciplines. Students may present their research either in a poster session or an oral presentation session. We will also have a dedicated performance space in nearby Meany Hall for performing arts presentations and a visual arts and design showcase in Odegaard Undergraduate Library. Last year, over 1,000 students participated in this exciting event.
To learn more and start an application, visit the Undergraduate Research Symposium section of the URP website. All UW undergraduates involved in research are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is February 22, 2016.
Interested students are also encouraged to attend one of our upcoming Symposium Info Sessions and to register for one of our Abstract Writing Workshops to assist you with your application. The first Information Session is Monday, January 25, 2:30-3:20 PM.
Not yet involved in research? Volunteer or stop by on the day of the event to learn more about the research that UW undergrads are participating in, from projects in synthetic chemistry to new ideas in the realm of dance.
If you have any questions, contact urp.
P.S. You need not have results of your research by the February application deadline – In fact, most students will not have results until May. Come to an Abstract Writing Workshop to learn more about how you can write a compelling abstract for your in-process project!
