Undergraduate Research Symposium Volunteer Form

The 2021 Undergraduate Research Symposium will be online, and we are looking for volunteers to serve as judges!  Judges will evaluate videos (and pdfs, in the case of posters) of student presentations between Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, May 2, 2021. Judges will evaluate the presentations online and submit a rubric with written feedback for each student.

We encourage graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty from different disciplines at KU to volunteer to serve as a judge.  No prior judging experience is required, and we will provide guidelines and rubrics.  We will need judges from all different disciplines at KU (sciences, humanities, social sciences, arts, etc.), and we do our best to assign students to judges in related disciplines.

If you're interested in volunteering as a judge for the 2021 Online Undergraduate Research Symposium, submit this form by Wednesday, April 7, 2021.
