Submit an Undergraduate Symposium Application


Undergraduates enrolled at UW–Madison during the current academic year are eligible to participate including those graduating in December prior to the symposium.

Visiting students who are not officially enrolled at UW–Madison, but are currently participating in an undergraduate team research project, may present their work as long as one member of the project team is enrolled at UW–Madison and holds undergraduate status. The currently enrolled UW–Madison student must be the primary applicant for the project.
