The Black Hills Research Symposium is an interdisciplinary conference to showcase undergraduate research activity in the Black Hills region.
We invite submissions from undergraduate and graduate university students in the Black Hills to present posters or to give oral presentations describing completed scholarly work. Student work must be done in collaboration with a faculty research mentor. An interdisciplinary faculty committee will review submissions for acceptance.
During the Black Hills Research Symposium, a panel of experts will judge student presentations and award cash prizes for the top presentations.
