Social Work Student Research Symposium
Friday, March 27, 2020
9:30 am-12:00 pm

Why should students participate?
This event will provide students an opportunity to present their research on a poster and share their work with classmates, faculty, and the social work community. There will also be a new opportunity to give a 3-minute oral presentation about your research. This will be a great addition to resumes as students begin their job search as social workers. A $50 cash prize will be awarded to the best posters at the BSW, MSW and PhD levels.

The application includes the submission of a structured abstract (no longer than 250 words) using the following headers: Background/Significance, Methods/Approach, Results/Findings, and Discussion/Conclusions.
