There are various types of awards available for the conference: the Conference General Disciplinary Awards (General Awards) sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and Charlotte academic departments, the Honors College Awards sponsored by the Honors College, the Sustainability Award sponsored by the Levine Scholars, and the Community Engagement Award sponsored by Academic Affairs.
At the time of URC submission, students can indicate if they would like to be judged for a conference award. Students must submit an abstract and recorded presentation to Symposium before the deadline dates to be eligible for an award. Honors students can also choose to be judged for additional Honors College awards by clicking the appropriate box on their submission form. Likewise, if the research is related to Community Engagement or Sustainability students should select those categories during registration. Please see below for the criteria that the judges will use to determine the winners of these awards.
