Undergraduate Research Symposium Offers Funding for New Projects

Students from ICFNJ's 14 member colleges and universities were eligible to apply to participate in the symposium. Priority is given to students in STEM majors during the selection process but all applications received full consideration.

Funding for the Symposium is provided by corporate and foundation partners who share in a commitment to increase the retention rate of students enrolled in STEM programs.  Research opportunities help develop citizens who think clearly, who are curious and creative and who will thoughtfully hold our public officials accountable.  The education provided through this opportunity opens minds, and thereby, expands the spirit and strength of the fabric of New Jersey.

Participants in the Undergraduate Research Symposium will have an opportunity to interact with industry professionals, member institution faculty, and business professionals in a judged competition designed to build workforce skills on Monday, March 5th at the Liberty Science Center..  All students receive feedback on their written and poster presentations.
