Authors of successful proposals will be contacted in early March to submit a working draft of their paper.
Authors will be contacted again in late March to submit an updated draft of their paper.
These papers will be judged by a panel. The top four papers in each of three areas (humanities, sciences, social sciences, very loosely defined) will be selected as semi-finalists (total of 12 semi-finalists).
All presentations happen on Campus Research Day, April 11, 2019. Semi-finalists will present their papers at 8:00. All others will be presenting throughout the day.
Three semi-finalists will be named finalists, and will present their papers a second time at the dean’s luncheon at 12:00 noon. The faculty members present at this luncheon will vote to determine the overall winner of Campus Research Day.
Winners will be announced on social media and through email no later than 5pm on Research Day.
Winners will be recognized and given their awards at the Awards Convocation on April 25. $100 goes to the poster session winner. $500 goes to each of the three semi-finalists. An additional $500 goes to the day’s overall winner.
