The Fall Undergraduate Research Meeting is a research grant proposal competition, which has been held annually since the Fall of 2001. Students, with their faculty mentors, must submit Research Grant Applications and develop posters following the criteria of the Fall Meeting Poster Guidelines. This year’s meeting will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at Hampden-Sydney College in Prince Edward County, VA.
A new feature this year will be roundtable discussions. The Academy is inviting scientists from Virginia industries, government agencies, consulting firms and other science-related employers to attend this meeting. During and after lunch, these visiting scientists will lead discussions with groups of undergraduates. Discussions will be informal and cover a variety of topics ranging from preparing for job interviews and choosing a science-related career to maintaining professional credentials after earning a university degree.
