Hope’s Celebration of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity is a culminating event for many students to showcase their work to students, faculty, family and community members.

Celebration movED ONLINE for 2020 

FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 2021


Find an overview of the events and deadlines leading up to the Celebration. 


Every project must be registered. If there is more than one student researcher on a project, the group should pick a "lead student" to enter project information. Registration opens January 10. See guidelines on who, when and where to register.


Most often, students present their research on a flat poster. Other ideas and formats are welcome. Typical posters are 24" x 36" or larger, up to 42" high by 48" wide, displayed two on each side of a large poster display board. Students can also choose to use a tri-fold poster board set on a table. See pictures of various poster formats and templates.


Upon registration you will be asked to create an abstract for your project. A book will be published, both in print and on Digital Commons, at the beginning of May that includes abstracts from the projects presented at the Celebration. Find abstract requirements and samples. 


Note: This information will be updated soon to reflect an online format for 2020.
