Dear Friend of Undergraduate Research,
We are writing to invite your nomination of outstanding students to participate in the 28th Annual UC San Diego Undergraduate Research Conference to be held on Saturday, April 25, at the UC San Diego Faculty Club.
At the conference, students will have the opportunity to present their research papers, experiments, or other projects at small informal roundtables, each moderated by a member of the faculty. Last year, more than 140 students participated in the conference and found it to be both a challenging and rewarding experience.
The conference supports the scholarly and creative aspirations of UC San Diego undergraduates and provides them increased opportunities for intellectual recognition and encouragement at UC San Diego. It is UC San Diego's only campus-wide recognition of undergraduate research. Only students nominated by a UC San Diego faculty member can participate in this conference. Presenters attending the conference will have the opportunity to interact with faculty and students and enjoy a catered breakfast and buffet lunch. In appreciation, they will also receive a certificate recognizing their respective scholarly achievements.
The deadline to nominate a student is March 24, 2015. To nominate up to three of your top students to participate in the 28th Annual UC San Diego Undergraduate Research Conference, simply:
(1) Complete the online form at:
(2) Inform the student of the nomination.
Please consider serving as a roundtable moderator at this event (you do
