Although Duquesne’s Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium (URSS) has been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, undergraduates may submit their work in a virtual format. The Office of Student Research has added a Paper Competition and Virtual Poster Competition to the agenda in addition to its Video Competition.
Undergraduate students are encouraged to submit a video of three minutes or less about their research or scholarship project. Students also may compete in the URSS Paper Competition by submitting a research paper no longer than five pages to this site. Finally, students may submit a virtual poster to the poster competition. Guidelines and information can be found on the URSS website.
This year’s competition provides a creative opportunity for students to concisely communicate their research’s importance to a general audience, an essential career skill.
The deadline for both competitions is Tuesday, April 21. A committee of faculty and staff will review the submissions, and the winning authors and producers will receive monetary awards.
