Students are expected to review the abstract with their mentor. The KU Writing Center website provides tips for writing abstracts; advice on writing abstracts and developing keywords can also be found on this site from Springer.

Awards: On the registration form, students will select whether they would like to have a judge evaluate their presentation online.  Students who are evaluated will be eligible for an Outstanding Presentation Award ($50) and will get feedback emailed to them. Students who choose not to be evaluated by a judge will not be eligible for an award.

ACE Talks: Three students will be selected to be one of the featured speakers at the 2022 online Undergraduate Research Symposium. These students will record a video of themselves presenting their research that will be posted online.  Read more about the ACE Talks.
