Undergraduate Research Day
Maryland Undergraduate Research Day - April 29, 2015
This event is proudly sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Studies and the Maryland Libraries. Undergraduate Research Day is held every April. Undergraduate Research Day 2014 was a great success.
With students involved in so many research opportunities, Undergraduate Research Day provides the perfect opportunity for them to share their work with the campus community. Held each April, Undergraduate Research Day showcases current research, scholarship, and artistic endeavors. Presentations, posters, and performances are open to the public and 388 students participated in 2013, presenting 128 research projects. Any work conducted as a part of a campus course, internship, or program is eligible for presentation.
IMPORTANT: All posters should be designed for 36 x 48-inch dimensions, either portrait or landscape orientation. If your poster must be another size, please include the estimated size of your poster under Other Information when you submit your proposal or email this information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
