When can I submit my Proposal?
The online proposal submission tool will open mid-January 2015.
How are proposals selected?
A Proposal Committee made up of Bay Area honors professors screened all proposals and selected those that will be presented at the Symposium. This was an anonymous process meaning that names and colleges were kept secret until the selection process was completed. In the event of "close calls", please note that proposals from Northern California Colleges were given preference.
While we are limited by classroom space to the number of presentations we can choose, we also only select those which are truly oustanding. We really mean it when we say this Symposium features the "Best Honors Student Research". In past years this has meant choosing between 70-85 proposals, but quality, before numbers, drives the selection process.
Who is eligible to present at the Symposium?
Any California community college Honors Student is eligible to present at the Symposium. The work for your presentation should have been done from Spring 2014 up to the present.
Can I just attend the Symposium without being a presenter?
Absolutely! The majority of attendees are there to support their chosen colleagues and enjoy a day of intellectual stimulation.
