Call for Submissions: 2023 Undergraduate Research & Scholarship Symposium at Michigan Tech

Michigan Tech’s Pavlis Honors College invites undergraduate researchers and scholars from all colleges to submit for presentation at the 2024 Undergraduate Research & Scholarship Symposium (URSS).

The symposium allows undergraduate students to present posters describing completed or ongoing research and receive feedback from faculty judges. This event is an excellent learning experience and showcases the great undergraduate research and scholarship occurring at Michigan Tech.

The URSS will be held March 22 in the Rozsa Lobby. Coinciding with Michigan Tech’s Preview Day, the symposium is a great way to share the exciting research projects from across campus with high school students considering attending Michigan Tech.

Research submissions are due Feb. 6 at 11:59 p.m; please encourage your students to register and submit their work. To submit, they should visit the URSS website and follow the instructions provided. It is recommended that applicants save their text in a document and copy the required information into the submission form.

Submissions will be reviewed by Pavlis Honors College staff and confirmation of acceptance will be sent by March 1. Please note: If more submissions are received than space in the Rozsa Lobby allows, it is possible some will not be accepted.

Questions can be directed to Chris Hohnholt at cahohnho@mtu.edu. We look forward to seeing your submissions and presentations!
