Featured Resource: Research Experience Program


The Research Experience Program is a certificate that recognizes KU students who do undergraduate research and creative projects.  The certificate is noted on the student's KU transcript, and can be a great asset when applying for jobs.  A public presentation is required to complete the certificate, so be sure to check it out ASAP in case you want to register to present at the Undergraduate Research Symposium before April 1! Graduating seniors should apply for the certificate by Stop Day, May 6.

Apply to give an A.C.E. Talk   

Undergraduate students of all majors are encouraged to apply to give one of three keynote talks at this year's Undergraduate Research Symposium.  Winners will be selected based on who has the potential to give the most Accessible, Creative, and Engaging talk.  Each keynote speaker will receive $500.  


Applications for the A.C.E. Talks consist of your abstract and a 3-minute-video of yourself talking about your research or creative project.  We're hosting a workshop on Monday, March 28, from 4:00-5:00pm in the Malott Room of the Kansas Union to help you prepare your abstract and video.  Join us to get some tips and feedback before the April 1 deadline!
