I wanted to take a moment to invite you and your undergraduate students to participate in the 9th annual Collin College Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Student Research Conference.
It takes place April 18 & 19, 2018 on the Spring Creek Campus (2800 East Spring Creek Parkway. Plano, Texas, 75074) and is open to all undergraduates from all disciplines.
The call for papers is attached here.
Visit our website at: http://www.collin.edu/conference/studentresearch/
You will find the call for papers, FAQs, maps, past programs, etc. You can also watch an 8-minute video on the conference background and submission process which can be accessed here: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cblrFp28sX
In a nutshell, students that have conducted or are currently conducting research (experiments, social science research papers, art displays, etc.), are encouraged to submit. If accepted, you will present on either April 18th or 19th, 2018 in whatever format they prefer (roundtable, panel, performance, poster board, etc.).
The Top 6 (competed) papers will receive “Top Paper” honors. Four of those winners will receive a $1,250.00 scholarship!
The event is free, open to the public, fully catered, and an exceptional way for Undergrads to experience an academic conference. In fact, even if you are not presenting, we encourage you to attend as audience members!
I hope you’re having a great week!
By way of a quick introduction, my name is Will. I am a current student at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and an alum of The Horizons School. I recently joined the Horizons team to help identify candidates for our fully funded Horizons fellowship program.
The Horizons Fellowship is a fully-funded technology immersion fellowship for top university students from around the world. As technology continues to play a larger role on the world stage, whether it be in business, politics, art etc., we have been reaching out to various Southern Methodist University clubs to encourage students to gain a solid technical foundation.
Past Horizonites have come from schools like Harvard, Princeton, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, and more. We’ve had engineers, business students, liberal arts majors and designers take our program – they’ve gone on to receive product management, engineering, and venture capital offers from firms such as Google, Zappos.com, Yelp, Optimizely, Redfin, Insight Venture Partners, and Slack. Others are winning global hackathons and building their own startup ideas.
I would be thrilled and honored if you could forward out this opportunity to interested members of your club. Our programs are open to students of any year and any major – we encourage candidates with diverse backgrounds and interests to apply!

The Horizons Fellowship
The Horizons Fellowship supports 200 outstanding university students on a fully-funded experience in San Francisco, in their pursuit to become leaders in technology. Our programs provide immersive software engineering and web/mobile development courses geared towards high-achieving college students. Students need not have a computer science background!
Horizons students have gone on to receive offers from firms such as Google, Slack, Yelp, Amazon, BCG, Visa, J.P. Morgan, and more
Past Horizonites have come from a variety of schools and backgrounds. Applicants have hailed from Southern Methodist University, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, Northwestern, Brown, Michigan and more.
Rice University is hosting the Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS) on Saturday, November 4, 2017.
Attached is a flyer for the symposium.
GCURS is a forum for undergraduate researchers to present original research discoveries. The symposium format is 10-12 minutes, individual, oral PowerPoint presentation. An additional 2-3 minutes will be allotted for a question-and-answer period. Our students report that giving formal presentations in a multi-institution event is more interesting and valuable than either an in-house presentation series or regional conference poster session. GCURS also fosters intercollegiate interactions among students and faculty who share a passion for undergraduate research.
Meals will be provided on the day of the symposium. To close the symposium, an interdisciplinary networking reception with heavy appetizers and hors GCURS 2017d’oeuvres will be held for all GCURS participants and visiting faculty.
A limited number of rooms at the Marriott Hotel are available for participants and visiting judges traveling to Houston.
Interested students should register online at gcurs.rice.edu and submit a one-page research abstract by Tuesday, October 10, 2017. We can accommodate 60 students in each section. In previous years we have been able to accommodate almost all registrants who wanted to speak, but if capacity becomes limiting we will select participants on the basis of submitted abstracts. Advisors can also register online at gcurs.rice.edu.
