Emory STEM Symposia

Application and registration are free.
Key points about the symposium are as follows: 
  • Dates and venue – October 1-3, 2017, Emory Conference Center.
  • Full travel scholarships available for students from underrepresented groups. Last year 60% of student attendees received full travel awards and another 10% received partial travel awards.
  • Application deadline May 1st, 2017
  • Students undergoing their first research experience this summer may apply to a second deadline of August 1st.
  • For undergraduates,  graduate students, and their mentors.
  • Student research presentations, career development workshops and social events.
  • Free application and registration.
Full information, including the schedule form our 2016 Symposium and a brochure for the 2017 Sysmposium, are on our website (http://www.gs.emory.edu/STEM). Details of the conference are summarized below.
  • A premier research conference for undergraduates interested in learning about PhD, MD/PhD or postbaccalaureate programs; graduate students contemplating postdoctoral training; and the advisors of these students.
  • Two days of shared research presentations, networking and mentoring.
  • Interactions with Emory research faculty mentors, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
  • Round table discussion for faculty and program staff attendees with a group of Emory faculty.
Due to the success of the previous symposia and the restricted number of attendees, we expect competition for acceptance to be spirited. Only abstracts that report outcomes/results will be competitive. Up to ten students will be selected from the submitted abstracts to present a platform talk, andtheir advisors will also receive a travel award if necessary. All remaining student participants will be expected to present a poster on their research.
Mentors who write letters of reference for their students will be notified by e-mail whether or not the application was successful.   At that time mentors will also receive information about how to register to attend with their students if they wish to do so.   If you have any questions, please e-mail us at stem.symposia@emory.edu. We look forward to hearing from you and your students.

Information sessions on 2 undergraduate research scholarships

The School of Engineering will be hosting the National Scholarship Office for two upcoming information sessions for the SMART and RISE programs on Tues., Oct. 20 at 2pm in the School of Engineering West Hall (601 W. Main St.) Room 104 and Wed., Oct 28 at Noon in the School of Engineering East Hall (401 W. Main St.) Room 2219.

Please share these two opportunities with your students:

  • The SMART Scholarship for Service Program is an opportunity for students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to receive a full scholarship and be gainfully employed upon degree completion. More information on SMART: smart.asee.org
  • RISE is a summer internship program for undergraduates in the fields of engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, earth sciences (geology) and related disciplines to conduct research in Germany during the summer. More information on RISE: daad.org/rise

Attached is an informational flyer for both information sessions, if you can post them where interested students might see them (or share them via social media). I have also attached an informational flyer from the SMART program.

Interested students who cannot attend either information session can contact our office (natlscholar@vcu.edu) to get more information about these opportunities.

Thank you for your support in ensuring we reach as many potential applicants as possible!

The program offers students an excellent opportunity to hone research skills and to experience life as a graduate student. Students will enhance their academic resume, work closely with faculty and peers, and have fun with social and professional development activities, all while receiving numerous benefits. Students historically underrepresented in graduate education are especially encouraged to apply. Due to funding restrictions, participation is limited to U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents (those holding a green card.)

All programs for 2015 are listed at http://www.unl.edu/summerprogram and include projects in Applied Mathematics, Biochemistry, Bioenergy Systems, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Microbiology, Minority Health Disparities, Nanotechnology, Optics and Laser Physics, Redox Biology, and Virology.
Our online application makes it easy for students to apply. Priority review of applications begins Monday, February 2 and all applications are due by Monday, March 2.
Thank you for your assistance in disseminating this information.
