Dear students,

On behalf of the College of Science and STEM Accelerator, I am pleased to announce the Call for Posters for the 9th Annual College of Science Undergraduate Research Colloquium.  The purpose of this event is to showcase the variety of undergraduate research projects in the College.  This year’s event will feature a student poster session, catered reception and awards.

If you are a student engaged in undergraduate research at any level in any academic unit within the College of Science you are encouraged to participate.  Presenting your research is a terrific addition to your resume!

*New this year* Nominate your faculty mentor for the COS Mentor of Excellence Award!  When submitting your abstract, you can enter your faculty mentor’s name and respond to a question about your nomination. Faculty awards will be given with the student awards at the Colloquium on April 25th.

You can register to present at the Undergraduate Research Colloquium on the event website: https://cos.gmu.edu/stem/COSURC.  Deadline for abstract submission is March 29, 2019.
