Instructors: are you interested in incorporating a larger research or creative project into your course, but you aren't sure you have the time?  Check out the Graduate Research Consultant (GRC) program, which funds a graduate student to assist in your course.  We're taking applications now for Fall 2015 (applications will be due July 15th)!

Interested in having your research/creative project recognized on your KU transcript?  Check out the Research Experience Program certificate to see if you've met the requirements, and apply by May 8 if you're a graduating senior.  Continuing undergraduates should be sure to view the REP requirements so you can make plans to complete them (don't worry--you have until you graduate to apply!).

Thanks for a great Symposium! 
Many thanks to all the presenters, mentors, instructors, and volunteers who made the 2015 Undergraduate Research Symposium a great success!  Over 600 people attended (compared to around 325 last year), 167 students presented their research and creative projects, and over 50 volunteers helped out the day of the event. Thirty of these student presenters won Outstanding Presentation Awards. It was a great way to see the diversity of research experiences on campus; thanks to everyone for sharing their work!
