Nominate an undergraduate researcher for showcase lightning talk

This year’s Undergraduate Research Showcase (URS) will take place virtually on Friday, Apr. 23. In addition to poster sessions, the showcase will feature a plenary Lightning Talk session, spotlighting advanced undergraduate students’ research experiences.

Each Boise State faculty member is eligible to nominate one undergraduate student. The planning committee will select 15 students from across the university to present their work. A recording of last year’s session is available at:

Nominated students should have some prior oral presentation experience (e.g. in-class presentations, departmental, college-wide, previous undergraduate research conferences, Idaho Conference on Undergraduate Research, regional/national discipline-specific conferences). Selected students will receive coaching on slide design and their talk prior to their presentation.

Nominations are due Monday, Feb. 8, 2021 by completing this form.
