Undergraduate Research Symposium

Along with many other events this spring, the Research Symposium has been canceled due to the coronavirus. Thank you to all students who submitted essays, and we hope to host this event in the spring of 2021!

Have a great research project? Want to share your discoveries with your peers? This is your opportunity to contribute to the SAU community of learners (it also looks good on your resume and may net you some cash).

This spring SAU will host the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium to celebrate the academic discoveries of our students.

Presentations will be approximately 15 minutes and can be in any academic discipline. We welcome poster presentations or other formats that are suited to research in your discipline.

The symposium will be run along the lines of an academic conference; there will be concurrent sessions of three or four presenters with time for questions at the end of each panel.

The symposium will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 1st.

Submissions will be judged by the Writing Center tutors on the basis of three criteria: a compelling thesis, in-depth research (this looks different depending on the academic discipline, and clear writing. The best three submissions will receive recognition and a cash award: first essay $100, second essay $60, and the third essay $40.
