Emory STEM Symposium - opportunity for your students

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


The abstract submission site for the 4th Emory University –Laney Graduate School Research and Career Symposium is now open. This year, the conference has moved to the Fall, to SEPTEMBER 18-20, 2016.

The Symposium offers your undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to present their research, attend career development workshops, and learn about career and training opportunities at Emory and elsewhere. Application and registration for the conference are free. STUDENTS FROM UNDERREPRESENTED GROUPS (racial minorities, disabled students and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds) ARE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR TRAVEL AWARDS that will provide for their travel and housing (we funded more than 60 such awards last year). As before, we also invite you to attend together with your student(s). Full information is in the attached brochure and on our website ( Details of the conference are summarized below
• A premier research conference for undergraduates interested in learning about PhD, MD/PhD or postbaccalaureate programs; graduate students contemplating postdoctoral training; and the advisors of these students.
• Two days of shared research presentations, networking and mentoring.
• Interactions with Emory research faculty mentors, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
• A round table discussion for faculty and program staff attendees with a group of Emory faculty

Please distribute the attached information to your undergraduate and graduate students, who may apply directly through our website and to your colleagues in the STEM disciplines at Louisiana State University. The APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MAY 1ST. However, students who are undergoing their first research experience this summer will be able to submit a LATE-BREAKING APPLICATION and abstract for an AUGUST 1 deadline. We will reserve 20% of our travel awards and presentation slots for these applicants.

Due to the success of previous symposia and the restricted number of attendees, competition for acceptance will be spirited. ONLY ABSTRACTS THAT REPORT OUTCOMES/RESULTS WILL BE COMPETITIVE. Up to ten students will be selected from the submitted abstracts to present a platform talk, and their advisors will also receive a travel award if necessary. All remaining student participants will be expected to present a poster on their research.

Mentors who write letters of reference for their students will be notified by e-mail whether or not the application was successful. At that time mentors will also receive information about how to register to attend with their students if they wish to do so. If you have any questions, please e-mail us at
