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. Student organizations, special topic courses, and other groups are encouraged to organize panels. Art, photography, sculpture, scientific posters, and projects suitable for display will be exhibited.

Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words to and will be evaluated by The Honors College Advisory Committee. Students will be notified by early March regarding the committee's decision. Submissions must be received by Friday, January 15th by 5pm to be eligible for the competition, although entries after this date will be considered for presentation until the final deadline of Friday, February 12th at 5pm.
