Hey all! The Yale-NUS Society for Academic Research will be organizing an interdisciplinary undergraduate academic research conference, open to all NUS and Yale-NUS students of any faculty or major!

It’ll consist of two parts: the first (in March) for presenting a rough outline of your proposed research, and the second (in Nov) for presenting your completed paper. Afterwards, some papers -after being reviewed and approved- will also be guaranteed publication in the Yale-NUS Undergraduate Journal at the end of the year.

It’ll be a great opportunity for anyone interested in academia/ research/ furthering their studies. You’ll receive feedback/ freely exchange ideas in a highly supportive intellectual setting, and make new friends!
