The Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is a chance for undergraduates to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. The Symposium also provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The Symposium includes poster and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited guests.

All UW undergraduates involved in research are encouraged to apply and those not yet involved in research will discover that attending the Symposium is a great way to learn about the broad range of opportunities available at the UW. In 2013, over 1,000 undergraduates participated in the Symposium, with more than 3,500 people attending.

The Symposium includes projects from all disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a broad range of exciting research topics. To help participants prepare, the URP conducts Symposium abstract writing workshops , poster design and presentation workshops.

Participant abstracts are published in the Symposium Proceedings, and students can include their presentations on resumes and graduate school applications.
