The opportunity to present your research in a professional,
public setting is the ultimate outcome of a research project.
We encourage all students participating in undergraduate
research at ETSU to plan to present their results. If you
currently are in a designated Honors program at ETSU,
presentation of your Senior Honors Thesis at a public and
publicized event is a requirement of your program.
There are many venues for presentation, including local,
regional or national/international meetings either in a
professional discipline or dedicated to undergraduate research.
You should plan to present the results of your research or
creative project at one of the following:
A Seminar announced by the
Appalachian Student Research Forum sponsored by ETSU.
This Research Forum enables graduate and undergraduate
students to present the results of the completed research
projects. Undergraduate presentations are limited to
Undergraduate Research Symposium sponsored by The Honors
College and open to all undergraduate students who wish to
give oral presentations of their research prospectus,
preliminary results of on-going studies, or final results.
This symposium is intended to provide undergraduates the
opportunity to discuss and receive feedback and ideas from
A national undergraduate
research forum (e.g.,
National Conference on
A regional, national or
international professional meeting in your field
When possible, we’ll try to add announcements of the more
specialized professional conferences
who invite and welcome undergraduate research presentations.
If you presentation is accepted at a regional, national, or
international professional conference, you can apply for a
from the Honors College to
help support your attendance at the meeting. You’ll need to
have documentation of acceptance for presentation and a budget;
we recommend you consult with your faculty sponsor before
submitting a request for this award program.
We also hope you will have the goal of publishing your research
in an appropriate journal as publishing your work is another
venue for presenting results. Please visit our website on
Publishing Your Research to find links to a variety of
publications and options. You should know that simply “posting”
your results on the Internet does NOT qualify as professional
