Submission Policy

Any Winthrop undergraduate who has engaged in research (i.e., scholarly or creative activity) between Summer 2020 and Spring 2021, or who has presented or performed his/her work at a professional meeting and/or to the campus community during that time is encouraged to submit to Undergraduate Scholarship and Creative Activity 2021, and to consider presenting or performing at the seventh annual Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE) in April 2021 (exact date TBD). This includes students who have conducted exemplary work in classes with discipline-specific scholarly or creative activities. Each submission must be sponsored by a Winthrop faculty mentor or department chair.

The body of the abstract or description (not counting title, authors, etc.) is limited to a maximum of 250 words and should concisely describe the scholarly or creative project. (See your faculty mentor for help writing the abstract/description.)
