2018 Fall Symposium
November 15, 3-6pm
The Office of Undergraduate Research is issuing a call for abstracts for its Fall 2018 Symposium. The winners of the symposium will be fully supported in their paper/performance submission to the National Conference on Undergraduate Research and their travel to the conference covered by OUR.
Abstracts may be submitted for traditional research in any field, composition or performance in music or theatre, and visual art.
Students should submit a 300-word abstract and letter of support from a faculty mentor to OUR@unco.edu by 5pm Friday, October 5.
A committee of faculty and staff will select 8 or 9 abstracts for full presentation at the fall symposium, taking place in mid November. Of those presenting, three will be chosen as winners, and will submit their papers/presentations to NCUR for consideration.
