Event Details

The FIU McNair Scholars Research Conference offers a dynamic, interdisciplinary forum in which undergraduate students can share their work. Students actively contributing to research under the guidance of a university professor are invited to participate. Student Research will be presented as posters and/or orally. Important feedback will help students to improve their investigational and presentation skills, and the experience will prepare them to compete at even higher levels in the future.

The FIU McNair Scholars Research Conference helps students build both their skills and their resumes while providing valuable information about graduate school. Keynote speakers will address the challenges and rewards of earning advanced degrees, and graduate program recruiters will offer advice and information during the graduate school fair.
