Millikin University is pleased to announce the winners of the 20th annual Undergraduate Research Poster Symposium.
The annual Poster Symposium provides students with an opportunity to share their scholarly work, and in the process increase campus and community awareness of the variety of scholarly activities conducted by students and faculty. In addition, the Poster Symposium is an excellent means of introducing and encouraging students to explore and participate in research opportunities at Millikin.
Participation in the poster symposium is open to all Millikin students, regardless of major or class rank. The requirement to enter is a letter from a faculty sponsor certifying a poster submission as B or better grade work. The poster presentation may consist of scholarly work completed in regularly scheduled courses, seminars, independent study, directed study, internships, SURF, Leighty Scholars, or James Millikin Scholars.
Students participating in the poster symposium are eligible for cash awards provided by the Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society and the Judith & G. Richard Locke Awards.
