I don’t think this has received enough attention, so here goes.
The first Rising Stars of Research poster competition, a national undergraduate research symposium, is being held at UBC from August 21-23. The gist is, you get to show off your mad-science-skills to undergraduates from around Canada, and compete for the top spot – that is, as long as you fit the criteria.
Anyone who participated in the MURConference knows these sort of events are an excellent experience in of themselves, never mind all the free food. But, that’s not all, because the top 50 selected participants of RSR will will have their expenses – accommodation and travel – fully paid for. I’m jealous.
