Scholarship takes many forms and occurs in every academic discipline. Therefore, the Celebration of Scholarship welcomes any work that presents the academic product of your field. Examples of the kinds of work you can present that will be considered for inclusion in the symposium include, but are not limited to, the following:
In order to have your application considered, you will need to provide information about your work, as well as information about the author(s) or developer(s) of the work and the faculty mentor. First, consider what type of presentation is most appropriate for your work. Consult with your faculty mentor and determine if it is the best fit to present as part of a Concurrent Session, Poster Session or as a Creative Work Performance or Exhibit. Students participating in the Stahl Center Business Plan Competition can also participate in Celebration of Scholarship by applying to the Business Plan Competition part of the Symposium. For more information about the differences in these presentation types, and the specific requirements for the associated applications, see the Getting Started page.
Before you begin your application, make sure you know the following information pertaining to your project:
Please Note: The number of applications accepted for Poster Presentation will be limited this year. Once evaluated for merit, applications for this presentation type will be determined for acceptance based on the order in which they were received. Please make submissions as soon as possible.
To apply to present as part of this year’s Celebration of Scholarship, your application must be submitted by:
11:59pm on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 (student and faculty submissions)
Student submissions only: Your faculty sponsor MUST approve your application before your application will be taken under review. It is important that you discuss your project with your faculty mentor before you submit your application so they are not surprised by your entry. It is also important to accurately enter your mentor’s email address, as this is how your mentor will be notified your submission is waiting for their approval.
Deadline for Mentor Approvals: 11:59pm on Friday, February 17, 2017
If you and/or your faculty mentor do not meet this deadline these deadlines, your submission will not be eligible for review by the Celebration of Scholarship Review Panel and will not be able to be considered for presentation. Please work closely with your faculty mentor to assure adequate time for the mentor to review and approve your submission. You must apply online by accessing the "Abstract and Application Submission" page.
Applicants will be notified of acceptance in mid-March, and will be asked to confirm their acceptance in a timely fashion. Applicants for Poster Presentations will be provided with instructions and the deadline for submitting their poster for printing.
Please Note: ALL posters must be printed using the Celebration of Scholarship directions, using a template provided on the PowerPoint and Poster Templates page.
An important decision to make is choosing the best format for presenting your work. To help you select the best fit for your presentation, check out the Getting Started page. Once you determine the presentation type, you will then be provided with details about developing the particular requirements for applying in that presentation group. You will then be able to designate the type of presentation you have selected as part of your application.
Whether this is your first time participating, or you’re a seasoned pro, the Committee hopes this will be a rewarding experience. To help make this year’s Celebration of Scholarship a success, a few things to keep in mind:
