Please share three exciting research opportunities with your students:

In/Between Conference – Undergraduate Research Poster Session – apply by February 3rd.

Students of all related majors and minors are invited to participate in the annual Undergraduate Research Poster Session that takes place in conjunction with the In/Between conference in the School of Literatures, Cultural Studies and Linguistics. The top three presentations will win awards in the amount of $50, $100, and $150. If you have recently or are currently engaged in a research project, please consider participating by designing a poster and preparing a 5-minute summary of your work (and preparing to be asked conversational questions). Just send the title of your research project and a 150-200 word description (abstract) of it by Friday, February 3, 5 pm.

The poster session will take place on Thursday, March 9 at 10 am. If you have a class conflict at that hour, we will be happy to contact your instructor to request an excused absence so that you may participate.

The University of Illinois at Chicago Health Professions Navigator Program (UIC-HPN) is now accepting applications for the Research Training and Career Development Program (RTCP), a program intended for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students from disadvantaged backgrounds. RTCP will help familiarize students with research and practice opportunities by pairing them with a mentor, or placing them in a practice site.

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student (from any college or university), and have an interest in pursuing a career within the health professions, you are eligible to apply! Please note that this is not a residential program.
