2020 University of Washington McNair Scholars Research Conference

The 2020 University of Washington McNair Scholars Research Conference will be held May 14th-15th in Seattle, WA!

We are excited to invite your scholars to submit abstracts to present either poster or oral presentations and take part in the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium at the UW-Seattle campus. This is one of the largest undergraduate research symposia in the country where over 1,000 undergraduates will be presenting their research. This provides an amazing opportunity to meet other scholars and to share their research in a unique, exciting and supportive environment. Our McNair Conference coincides with this symposium and is also an opportunity to spend time networking with and learning alongside McNair colleagues.
