General Symposium Information

Emory College offers research symposia featuring undergraduate research twice a year. The Fall Research Symposium is during Family Weekend in October, and the Spring Research Symposium is during Undergraduate Research Week in late April. Along with other interested students, students funded by SIRE will present their work in one or both of the symposia during the academic year they are funded.

Awards will be given to the best research presentation in each of the three major divisions: Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Humanities and Creative & Performing Arts.
