Due to space limitations, students applying to give oral presentations must first have been nominated by their department or research scholarship program. Students who have been nominated will receive email notifications of their nomination by TBD.
All students giving oral presentations at Undergraduate Research Week will present for 10 minutes total, which includes time for questions from the audience. To fit this 10-minute time frame, you should prepare a 7-minute presentation and allow 3 minutes for questions from the audience.
Be sure to rehearse and time yourself to make sure your presentation does not exceed 7 minutes. For most students, a 7-minute presentation, typed out in 12-point Times New Roman font, should be around 3.5 double-spaced pages.
The oral presentations will be organized into 1-hour panels. This means that you will give your presentation during an assigned 1-hour time spot along with a group of other students on your panel. Each panel will have a moderator.
