Research Conferences

The Honors Program encourages its students to participate in academic conferences that provide opportunities to distinguish oneself as a scholar. The conferences listed here provide a forum in which Honors students can present research results, participate in panel discussions, display poster presentations, and show or perform original work.  Depending on the conference, these presentations may be individual, in pairs, or small groups. The distinction of having presented at one or more conferences speaks well for students who are competing for admission to highly selective transfer schools, programs of study, and for competitive scholarships.
