The Online University Research Symposium will open April 9 on ISU ReD. Registration is open to all students currently enrolled at the University and engaged in research, scholarship, or creative activity under the direction of a faculty mentor. Individual as well as group projects are welcome from both graduate and undergraduate students.

An abstract is required, with the option to also include a poster, PowerPoint, or mp4 file at the time of registration. This year, an exciting addition to a poster submission is the option to submit a Screencast-O-Matic audio/video mp4 file (5-minute maximum length) describing the topic to a general audience.

Registration is now open online and will be open until noon CST on March 3, 2021.

Some disciplines may host their own oral events. Please contact your faculty mentor regarding such an event taking place in your department/school.

The Graduate School sponsors this event. For more information see the 2021 Symposium Guidelines. Please feel free to contact the Graduate School at (309) 438-2583 or Symposium staff at
