Participants, judges sought for Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium

All undergraduate student researchers are invited to participate in the Spring 2020 Undergraduate Research Symposium, taking place April 15 from 1-4 p.m. at Colvard Student Union.

Participation is free for the symposium, showcasing faculty-guided student research efforts from diverse departments, colleges and research centers across campus. Those entering the Arts and Humanities category may do either a poster presentation or talk, but participants in other categories must present a poster. Prizes will be awarded.

In recognition of MSU's Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, a community engagement track will be included in the symposium. In addition, participants may ask to be judged in the Public Health Research Competition or apply to compete in the Thesis Research Competition.   

The deadline to submit an abstract is 11:59 p.m. March 4.
