Undergraduate Symposium Abstract Workshop

Learn about the selection process and writing the abstract.


If you plan to apply to the Undergraduate Symposium, don't miss this workshop! You'll learn why the selection committee asks for an abstract and what they want from yours. You'll also learn how to make your abstract sound scholarly, smart, and, perhaps most important for this Symposium, appealing to a broad audience. Towards the end of the workshop, we'll look at sample abstracts and read each other's drafts.
