Sponsored by Academic Affairs, Atkins Library, the Charlotte Research Institute, Honors College and Levine Scholars Program, the Undergraduate Research Conference will be Friday, April 21, in the Barnhardt Student Activity Center. Colleges and departments across the University also provide conference support. This event is open to the campus community and to invited guests.
Work being presented can range from in-class projects to year-long honors theses. Students can organize their work in poster or oral formats, individually or in groups. Both formats are judged during the conference, and general prizes are awarded by discipline.
Four types of awards will be presented: the conference General Disciplinary Awards, (general awards) sponsored by UNC Charlotte academic departments; Levine Scholars’ Sustainability Awards; Honors College Awards; and Atkins Library Undergraduate Research Awards. All students who register for the conference and present their research will be automatically entered into the general awards contest - no other application is needed.
Students who are interested in presenting a more detailed written description of their research may apply for the Atkins Library Undergraduate Research Awards. A faculty advisor must submit a letter in support of the student’s application in order for it to be accepted. Five $1,000 awards are given annually in the following categories:
- Social Sciences/Education
- Physical Sciences/Engineering
- Biological Sciences/Health Sciences
- Math/Computer Sciences
