The Symposium selection process is highly competitive and the quality of your proposal determines whether you are chosen to present. Last year we received 184 proposals and we accepted only 85 of them.
For 2015 we saw a significant increase in applications; there were over 200 submitted by the February deadline. Students will be notified of their status via e-mail by mid-March.
Here are Sample Proposals to get the basic idea of what you needed to submit.
Here are proposals from the 2014 finalists for the Heslet Scholar Award. They represented the best of what we received last year.
You might also find the Program from last year's Symposium helpful to see the range of topics that were accepted.
