NYU Shanghai Academic Affairs provides opportunities for students to present their research work through the fall and spring semester Undergraduate Research Symposiums as well as external conferences.
Presentation at Academic Conference (PAC) grants: These awards provide limited funding for approved undergraduates at NYU Shanghai who have been selected to present their own original research at an academic conference related to their area of study. Please see here for instructions on how to apply.
The NYU Shanghai Undergraduate Research Symposium is a university-wide celebration of research which showcases work from undergraduates spanning the Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Computer Science, and Business. The Symposium features recently completed projects by Major Honors students, as well as research papers and creative work by students for their Capstone Projects, Independent Study Courses and as part of the Dean’s Undergraduate Research Fund (DURF).
Visitors will have the opportunity to cast a vote for the project that most impresses them, and a panel of NYU Shanghai faculty will select the winning projects.
Spring 2022 Undergraduate Research Symposium
The Spring 2022 Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held online. All participants are only required to prepare 1) a research poster and 2) a 3-minute audio presentation that explains the poster.
All posters and audios will be posted on the Undergraduate Research Symposium website in May. Members of the NYU Shanghai community can view, comment on, and vote for their favorite projects. A panel of judges will evaluate the projects based on the quality of the project, the presentation, and the poster.
