Independent College Fund of New Jersey Undergraduate Research Symposium
March 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Symposium provides research opportunities that are currently not available to undergraduate students at ICFNJ member institutions by offering funding prioritized for new independent research projects by students who have either not been engaged in research or who have not had the chance to develop independent research. The Symposium is the culminating event for 50 student research projects. Students present their findings in a judged competition. Students benefit from the interaction with judges from New Jersey industries and the independent colleges who share their knowledge, career experience and passion for research. The foundation for the Symposium is built on the proven concept that research opportunities maintain student interest and enhance student development. The program includes several distinct program goals focused on increasing student engagement, accountability and support for independent research. The Undergraduate Research Symposium fosters the STEM talent pipeline.
