  • Frontiers Poster Exhibition - Spring 2020 Dates

    The 23rd annual Frontiers in Undergraduate Research Poster Exhibition will be held on Friday, April 3rd and Saturday, April 4th in the Wilbur Cross North Reading Room. Frontiers is the University-wide annual showcase of undergraduate research and creative activity at UConn, where this year we expect more than 270 students from across the disciplines to present posters about their work. We will have four poster sessions over the course of the two-day exhibition.

    • On Friday, April 3, Session 1 will run from 2:00-3:30pm and Session 2 will run from 4:00-5:30pm.
      • A reception for all student presenters and their faculty mentors will be held immediately following Session 2 at 5:30pm. We will present the Mentorship Excellence Awards at this time. 
    • Frontiers will continue on Saturday, April 4, with Sessions 3 and 4 as part of UConn’s Admitted Students Open House. Session 3 will run from 10:00-11:30am and Session 4 will run from 12:00-1:30pm.

    UConn’s undergraduate researchers are our first priority in coordinating the Frontiers event; we aim to accommodate all students interested in sharing their research or creative activity with the UConn community. Varying student availability and the need for session breadth may mean that the mentees of a given faculty mentor will be scheduled in different sessions.

    All students interested in presenting must complete a brief application. This includes students required to present as a condition of receiving OUR funding (e.g., IDEA, SURF, HRP, SHARE, Supply/Travel Awards). The Frontiers application will be open February 17th – March 6th.
