The first annual HDFS Research Symposium will take place March 5, 2015 in the Georgia Center Atrium. Undergraduate HDFS majors who are currently engaging in Research Internships, working in an HDFS research lab, preparing a CURO presentation, or have been awarded the Family and Consumer Sciences Undergraduate Research Assistantship are encouraged to submit a proposal to present their research to HDFS graduate students and faculty during the HDFS Research Symposium.
The symposium gives undergraduates the opportunity to present their research, scholarly, and other endeavors—especially those undertaken with mentorship from faculty. A committee comprised of HDFS faculty will evaluate the presentations and choose the winner of the undergraduate research presentations who will receive a commemorative plaque and a monetary award of $100. In addition, the winner will be recognized on the department and the college websites as well as on the screens in Dawson Hall.
