Call for Submissions: Scholars Symposium and Creative Achievement Day
Tuesday, April 7, 2015 from 9am to 5pm
Elliott Student Union

The Office of Undergraduate Research and External Scholarships at the University of Central Missouri invites abstract submissions for the annual Scholars Symposium and Creative Achievement Day. The symposium is the university’s premiere event dedicated to showcasing achievements in undergraduate research and creative projects. All undergraduate UCM students are eligible to participate.

To promote engaged dialogue, the primary format of the event is roundtable presentations organized by discipline and moderated by UCM faculty. There will also be special sessions dedicated to the arts and humanities including, but not limited to, dance, theatre, fashion, and those presentations that utilize the common reader. Art, photography, sculpture, scientific posters, and other projects suitable for public display will be exhibited.

Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words and must be submitted to: by the final deadline of Friday, February 13th. Submissions will then be evaluated by The Honors College Advisory Committee. Students will be notified via email regarding the committee's decision. Those that are accepted for submission who also submitted their abstracts by the January 12, 2015 priority deadline will be eligible for competition. Up to three presentations will be chosen from each college, along with the top common reader presentation, for recognition.
