The deadline for student proposals for the 2013 Undergraduate Scholars Forum (USF) is this Friday, February 22, at 5:00 p.m. Faculty are asked to sponsor students and encourage them to submit their proposals to the Forum.

The eighth annual USF will be held on April 2.

There are many forms of undergraduate scholarship. The USF includes more than just traditional research studies. There are a number of formats that students can use to present their work so that every discipline can participate. Students can do oral presentations, poster presentations, or media presentations. Students could present a literature review, a research study that is in progress, a consulting project for a community group, Web pages designed for a business, a comparison of two approaches to aging services, or a media essay. Consider what your students are doing that is of high quality, and be the faculty sponsor for their submission to the Forum.

The submission system can be accessed here.

The Undergraduate Scholars Forum is cosponsored by the Office of the President and the School of Graduate Studies and Research.
