The SURF program culminates with a Research Symposium, where participants present their summer research findings. This event provides a great opportunity for the Purdue community to learn more about the interesting and innovative research being conducted by undergraduates in various labs across campus.

The students disseminate information on the research they conducted throughout the summer and a few presentations are chosen to be awarded during the end-of-summer closing ceremony. For more details on the judging criteria, you can view the following score templates:
