We invite you to join the 2021 Undergraduate Research Summer Symposium. This Symposium is an amazing opportunity for all undergraduate students to present their research. It will allow you to gain insight, talk to students who have already participated in this program, and provide you an opportunity to network with other researchers. The Summer Symposium is open to all University of Nevada, Reno and NSHE students who wish to present their research at this poster session.

All University undergraduates involved in research, scholarship, and creative activities are encouraged to register. Those who do not meet the registration deadline can still participate but will not be included in the printed program. Students who are funded through Undergraduate Research during the summer are required to participate. Also, students who did not present at the Undergraduate Research Spring Symposium during the spring semester are required to participate. Student presenters will be expected to present from 12-4 p.m. on the event date. Please arrive between 9:30-11 a.m. to sign-in and set up your poster. All presenters must be set up by 11:30 a.m. For those planning to view the student presentations, doors open at 12 p.m.
