The Purdue Undergraduate Research Symposium

What is the Purdue Undergraduate Research Symposium?

The Purdue Undergraduate Research Symposium is an opportunity for undergraduates to present what they have learned through research experiences to a broad community. This open symposium is free to the public and includes a poster and presentation opportunity for the participants. The event is held in April at the Purdue Memorial Union on the West Lafayette campus. Monetary prizes are awarded to the top researchers with public recognition for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place entries in each participating college. 

Participation as a team or individual under the mentorship of a faculty advisor could result in positive impact in local and/or global communities. Many students include research experiences on their online profiles, resumes and also include the project on their graduate school applications.  Click here to learn how Purdue University’s Institute for Social Empowerment through Entrepreneurship and Knowledge (ISEEK) work to empower under-privileged and poverty-stricken young people to lift themselves out of poverty.
