Undergraduate Research Day

Fifteenth Annual NSU Undergraduate Research Day: A Celebration of Scholarly and Creative Activity

Wednesday,  April 19, 2017
University Center, Ballroom. Tahlequah, OK

All undergraduates in good academic standing who are engaged in Research or Creative Activity under the direction of a Faculty Member are eligible and invited to participate (as long as they are currently enrolled in NSU, or graduate no earlier than December 2016). Students may apply in one of three categories: Outstanding Scholar, Poster Presenter, or Panel Discussion. Applications for Outstanding Scholar will be evaluated by a Screening Committee made up of Faculty from the Student's College who will choose one Outstanding Scholar and one runner-up from each College; the Outstanding Scholars will then be asked to give an oral presentation at Undergraduate Research Day. Applications that are not chosen for Outstanding Scholar will be automatically entered into the Poster Presenter category. Applications for Poster Presenter and Panel Discussion will also be evaluated by Screening Committees to insure that only quality projects that do not duplicate other work and which conform to appropriate ethical standards are presented.

All students who present projects at Undergraduate Research Day will receive a certificate of participation. Outstanding Scholars will receive a cash prize and a trophy; additional cash prizes will be awarded for Best Poster Presenter and for other presentations and categories if funds are available. Projects from all fields of study are eligible.

Details and application forms can be found at the Office of Institutional Effectiveness.

Deadline for receipt of application materials: 12:00 noon Friday March 24, 2017 (the Friday after Spring Break)
