The Maxwell School Celebration of Undergraduate Scholarship is open to all undergraduates participating in a Maxwell School upper division research seminar, Distinction Program, or Honors Program. Participants are expected to complete a substantial and original social science research project. All research projects must have a faculty sponsor. Please discuss your intent to register for the Celebration with your faculty sponsor and keep them aware of your research progress.
Research papers must be 4,000 words in length and consist of original research undertaken in the context of a social science upper division research seminar course, Maxwell department Distinction Program, or Honors project. Papers will be evaluated by a committee of Maxwell faculty. All submissions must be made as Word documents through Blackboard by 11:59 pm on April 26, 2018.
Research posters must document original research carried out as part of a social science upper division research seminar course, Maxwell department Distinction Program, or Honors Project. Poster session participants are required to attend the poster session on May 2, 2018, in the Maxwell Foyer to discuss their research with event attendees. Posters will be voted on by those attending the event. All posters must be submitted via Blackboard by 11:59 pm on April 26, 2018.
Once you have completed the registration form, you will be enrolled in the Maxwell School Celebration of Undergraduate Scholarship organization on Blackboard. You will receive notifications about event details and be able to submit your research paper and/or poster through the Blackboard organization.
Registration forms will be accepted through the on-line portal on a rolling basis until 5:00 pm on March 28, 2018.
