The deadline for students to submit proposals for IUP's Seventh Annual Undergraduate Scholars Forum will be 5pm Friday February 24, 2012. The event itself will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2012.  We hope that members of the IUP community will encourage students to submit their work to the Forum. Remember that all proposals must have a faculty sponsor.

 

The purpose of this conference is to provide IUP undergraduate students across all disciplines with an opportunity for professional development by presenting their original research, scholarly activities, teacher work samples, or creative works. A variety of presentation formats are available, including individual and group oral presentations, discussion panels, poster sessions and arts presentations. Faculty members are asked to be selective. Thus, if you assign a project in class with the intent of having students present their work at the USF, please select only those of the highest quality for submission to the Forum.

 

Submissions are accepted from ALL undergraduate students at IUP who demonstrate outstanding accomplishment in scholarly activity within their discipline. Students who graduated from undergraduate programs in December are eligible to submit a proposal to the forum as long as they are able to attend the event and present their work.
