The symposium is also open to a select number of undergraduates for attendance.  Undergraduates are encouraged to apply will be notified of their application status on March 11, 2017.

Undergraduate Attendees

This year we are excited to announce that a limited number of undergraduates will be invited to attend MGRS!  The first 50 registrants will be accepted to attend and we have some exciting undergrad-specific events planned, including an hour Q&A panel session on what to expect for graduate school.  We look forward to seeing you at the Q&A session from 3-4pm in student union room 2592.



Providing presenters with feedback is part of what makes this event a success.  If you are a faculty member or a post-doc, you are encouraged to sign up to be a judge at this event.  You may sign up to be a judge during one or all of the MGRS events (poster and/or oral presentations). 


The MGRS could not be successful were it not for the large number of volunteers who serve each year.  If you would like to volunteer at this year’s MGRS, whether because you would like to become an active member of GSA or because you enjoy a culture of energy and innovation, please contact the GSA as registration is now closed.
Volunteers must register by March 4, 2017.
