Supporting Documents

All applications must include a project description of no more than 300 words. The abstract is a brief description of the work to be presented. The nature of the abstract will vary with the type of work that is presented. You should consult with the professor that is helping to sponsor the application in writing the abstract but in general an abstract will give information to put the presentation into context.

  • Abstracts for research presentations will give some background information, state the research question or hypothesis that is being tested, and summarize results and conclusion.
  • Abstracts for methods-based presentations will describe the nature of the project and the solution.
  • Abstracts for creative presentations will describe the work, the impetus behind the work, techniques used in producing the work, and other relevant information.

Again, it is suggested that you write your abstract with help from a professor.

Each presentation will be judged based on the criteria indicated below:
