Students discuss projects at the Student Symposium

The 2021 Student Symposium will be conducted virtually, opening on April 12th. Sponsored Projects Administration is partnering with the University Libraries to utilize their platform and allow the projects to be archivable and more readily available to the wider public. 

The 2021 Student Symposium registration window opens on January 19 and closes on February 26Please remain on the lookout for new information regarding the 2021 guidelines/rules.

Present a creative or scholarly project while competing for scholarship awards and gaining valuable insight from faculty and staff judges.

For going on 26 years, the Student Symposium has encouraged interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about the topics that are most engaging to them. The symposium also provides an opportunity to discuss work with a broader audience than what is usually found in the classroom. 

The Student Symposium accepts poster, oral/paper presentation (recording), or other short video entries and is open to any student from Ball State University (undergraduate and graduate), Burris Laboratory School, and the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities.
