North Central College students may apply by Feb. 20 to present their original research at the College’s 16th annual Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research, which will take place during Honors Day on Tuesday, May 14.
Information about the symposium and how to submit proposals may be found on the College’s website. A list of frequently asked questions also is available.
The annual Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research is an opportunity for students of all academic disciplines to present their original scholarship. Faculty sponsors of participating scholars are encouraged to review students’ abstracts prior to submission. The website includes an online form through which students may submit abstracts describing their research.
Abstracts must be 150 words or less. Abstracts will be reviewed for a clear articulation of the aspect of the work that is creative or original. Students are required to submit five sources indicating works that have influenced their scholarship.
Students selected for participation and their faculty sponsors will be notified of acceptance for the Rall Symposium prior to start of spring term March 25.
Stephen Johnston, Roger and Nadeane Hruby Professor in the Liberal Arts and Sciences and associate professor of biology, and William Muck, assistant professor of political science, are coordinators of this year’s Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research.
