Kansas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol

Undergraduate researchers from all disciplines are encouraged to submit their application for the honor of presenting at the Virtual Kansas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol poster symposium which will take place during March 2-4, 2021.

This event will showcase the work of up to 40 Kansas undergraduate student projects representing each of the state’s eight public 4-year institutions. The purpose of this event is to demonstrate the unique opportunities undergraduate students have to participate with faculty members in research at all state institutions. This event will also emphasize higher education’s role in developing educated citizens and preparing a workforce with the necessary skills to further the economic growth of the state.

Participants should be able to convey their experience and enthusiasm to state representatives, senators, and other state officials in a poster session.  Projects from a broad range of disciplines are encouraged - especially posters that relate to the state of Kansas and issues important to the state legislature (e.g. education, health, agriculture, aviation, biotechnology, energy, transportation, manufacturing, environment, and social services). Up to 5 projects will be selected from each institution, with no more than ten students participating overall.

Researchers must:

  • be undergraduates during the 2020-2021 academic year;
  • have completed research under the guidance of a K-State faculty mentor;
  • follow the methodology of the appropriate academic discipline;
  • have research of sufficient quality to be presented at a professional academic meeting;
  • have the skills, resources, and capacity to produce a professional academic poster;
  • agree to undergo training and rehearse their presentations prior to the Capitol event. 

Please submit your application at http://bit.ly/2021KSURC by December 4, 2020.

In order for your application to be complete it must include:

  • The title of your project
  • A 250-word abstract
  • An updated resume
