Sixth Annual SPA Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Sixth Annual SPA Undergraduate Research Symposium provides a forum for undergraduate students to present their original scholarly and creative work before colleagues, friends, and faculty. Cash awards are given for the best presentations, and top students will be recognized at the annual SPA Awards Ceremony.

The symposium is open to all levels of undergraduate students, from freshmen to seniors. To apply, you only need to be enrolled in a course in SPA during AY 2013-2014. Students from CAS, KSB, SIS, and SOC are welcome to present their work if it was done for an SPA course. Please be aware that the symposium uses the term “research” to include creative and performance work as well as formal research.

The deadline for proposal submission is Friday, March 21, 2014. You can apply as a group or as an individual by registering online here. You will be asked to identify your SPA faculty sponsor and submit a 100-125 word description of your research project on the registration page. This Symposium will take place Friday, April 25 in the Ward Circle Building.

If you are joining us from off campus, you will find helpful information for your visit at www.american.edu/maps.

Please email spaundergrad@american.edu if you have any questions.
