All Eckerd College students are invited to participate in a symposium highlighting student research. Current students from all academic areas are welcome to participate by giving either a poster or oral presentation describing their work.
All submissions consist of significant original research performed by a student or group of students. All first authors must be current Eckerd College students. Abstracts are due in February and the Symposium is held in March each year.
Awards for the Symposium have been made possible through SunTrust/ASPEC/Faculty Learning Grants and the Eckerd College chapter of Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society. Each winning presentation received a $100 prize.
