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 2016,  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, poster design and PowerPoint presentation workshops.

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