The Ninth Annual SPA Undergraduate Research Symposium provides a forum for undergraduate students to present their original scholarly and creative work before colleagues, friends, and faculty. A “Best of” Award will be determined and handed out for each session, which will include recognition at the annual SPA Awards Ceremony. The symposium will take place on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 in MGC 2-5.
The symposium is open to all levels of undergraduate students, from freshmen to seniors. To apply, you need to have taken or be currently enrolled in an SPA course during AY 2016-2017. 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 the close of business Friday, March 10th. You can apply as a group or as an individual by registering online. You will be asked to identify your SPA faculty sponsor and submit a project description/abstract (1000 character limit) of your research project as part of the proposal.
