/ Celebration of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity


Registration for 2020 will be open January 9 through February 13. Submitting a registration will create a Google Doc of the abstract for that project. Abstracts will be editable until February 25.

Guidelines for 2020

There are two phases to registration:

1. REGISTER (January 9–February 13)

Each project must be registered by a student by February 13. A student may register more than one project. Multiple-author projects should be registered just once by one student. Be sure to be logged in to your 1Hope account when you register. See "Who Needs to Register" below for more information.

2. EDIT YOUR ABSTRACT (January 9–February 25)

Please follow the instructions on the abstract page for information about how to access, edit and finalize your abstract.

Learn how to edit your abstract 

Who needs to register

If more than one student is involved in the research, only one student ("lead student") will submit the project for the group. That student will be asked to list all other student presenters (for name tags). Any student listed under the "Presenter Names for Nametags" section of the form will be registered for the Celebration in April and will receive any event-related correspondence.

If a student is involved in the research project but not able to attend the Celebration, the lead student will include them in the "All Students Involved in the Research" section of the form but not the nametag section. This separate section will include all student presenters AND any researchers unable to be present at the Celebration, and will be used for the abstract booklet.

Registering a Second Project

If you will be presenting more than one project, you will need to register both projects separately.

To submit another project, go to the registration form and follow the procedure a second time. Be sure your web browser is logged in to your 1Hope account.

When to Register

Each project must be registered online between January 9 and February 13. If you need more time to decide on a presentation format, changes can be sent to celebration@hope.edu through February 25.

If you need more time to create and edit your abstract, you can do so in the automatically generated Google Doc through February 25.

All registration details should be finalized by February 25. Mentors must sign off on projects by February 27.
