Abstract deadlines for Undergraduate Research Symposium entries set for March 22

Mississippi State University's Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held April 13-14 in the Colvard Student Union, and all undergraduate student researchers are invited to participate.

This event showcases faculty-guided, student research efforts from diverse departments, colleges and research centers across campus. Students are invited to submit poster presentations and, for some areas, oral presentations or performances.

The event is hosted by the Judy and Bobby Shackouls Honors College in conjunction with the Office of Research and Economic Development and Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President.

The symposium is open to all undergraduate students engaged in faculty-mentored research and creative discovery. Submissions will be organized into four categories: Humanities and Arts, Biological Sciences and Engineering, Physical Science and Engineering, and Social Sciences.

This year, student presenters will receive feedback on their projects. In addition, 11 special area competitions are being held in conjunction with the symposium. These competitions offer awards and are sponsored by various colleges or interdisciplinary partnerships.

The abstract deadline for all submissions is 11:59 p.m., March 22. For more information, including the schedule, student handbook, description of special area competitions, and submission guidelines, visit https://www.urcd.msstate.edu/symposium.

Organizers are seeking graduate students and faculty volunteers to interact with and leave comments for student presenters. Those who are interested may sign up at https://msstate.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5sF92B0TgqgMgpE.
