MTSU students and faculty mentors who are preparing for the eighth annual Scholars Week 2014 must submit their abstract proposals by Tuesday, Feb. 25, said Andrienne Friedli, director of the Center for Research and Scholarship.
Abstracts should be submitted online through http://tinyurl.com/moo3wr8. Each online abstract submission will include a project title and 150- to 300-word summary of the research project. Only abstract submissions with undergraduate and graduate students as first authors will be eligible for judging and prizes.
Scholars Week will be held March 17-21. Events will include department and college activities in discipline-specific venues for presentation of graduate, undergraduate and faculty scholarship.
Planned activities will include talks, readings, performances, posters and multimedia performances, as well as invited speakers and an appreciation luncheon for faculty presenters and mentors, Friedli said.
The celebration of Scholars Week will culminate in a universitywide showcase of posters, multimedia and performance from 12:40 to 2:45 p.m. Friday, March 21, in the Student Union Ballroom. A group of judges will select the winners from each of the colleges within the university.
Provost Brad Bartel serves as executive chair of the 16-member Scholars Week Committee.
