Call for Abstracts

Who should apply?

We invite undergraduate students who conducted STEM research at a Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Campus to apply. Research on a project does not have to be complete, as long as a reasonable presentation can be made that conveys the essential aspects of the project and the expected/intended outcome(s).

Faculty mentors working with undergraduate students on research are encouraged to invite their students to apply.

Students submit an abstract for consideration by clicking the button below. Selected candidates will be required to prepare a PDF poster presentation and record a short video. Detailed instructions will be shared via email.
