Participants from summer research programs will present their work from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, in Altgeld Hall.

Both NIU and non-NIU students have participated in three formal research programs on campus this summer, including Research Experience for Undergraduates, McKearn Summer Fellows and the Summer Research Opportunities Program. Each eight-week provides students the opportunity to work with established NIU faculty across many disciplines, in addition to a stipend and room and board.

New this year, the Summer Research Symposium will also include presentations from students participating in the Undergraduate Research Assistantship program, the Summer Internships in Science and Technology at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the University Honors Scholars Program and NSF grant-funded research within the Horn Lab on campus.

The Summer Research Symposium is free and open to the public. Any student interested in a summer research program or getting involved in undergraduate research is encouraged to attend.
