Inquiring mind? We want to know.
The Undergraduate Research Program’s annual Students to Scholars Symposium is coming next month, gathering students from campus and disciplines to share ideas, meet peers and possibly land faculty mentors for collaboration and research.
Before research, come queries, and the deadline for submitting them is Oct. 25.
The symposium, entering its 10th year, returns live after a one-year COVID-19 pandemic-prompted virtual rendition.
Students who join the Nov. 11-to-Nov. 12 symposium, in Kreitzberg Library’s South Instruction Room, will present ideas to a faculty audience. The event will feature an undergraduate research poster session and showcase, an invitation-only awards presentation to recognize 2021 Undergraduate Research Fellowship and Apprentice Grant recipients and student panels.
Undergraduate Research Program Director Dr. Amy Woodbury Tease has said that at least half of the symposium participants write successful proposals for summer research fellowships or pursue research as a faculty mentor’s apprentice. This year’s symposium added a networking session to help students and faculty meet and spark research relationships.
“We are thrilled to be able to return to an in-person Students to Scholars experience this year,” Woodbury Tease said Thursday. “I encourage all students to think about a burning question they want to answer and pitch it to us — it is a simple application process that is rich in rewards: participating in the event looks great on a résumé and also invites opportunities to work with faculty and collaborate with other students.
“Plus, she added, “there are prizes.”
