Please email STUSYMPOSIUM@bsu.edu if you have any questions, changes, or wish to cancel.

For over twenty years the Student Symposium at Ball State University has provided students with the opportunity to present their creative and scholarly projects while competing for cash prizes and gaining valuable insight from faculty and staff judges from across the University.  The Symposium encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about engaging topics.  The symposium also provides an opportunity for student participants to discuss their work with a broader audience than what is usually found in the classroom. 

Every year, the Student Symposium accepts both poster and paper presentation entries and is open to any student from Ball State University (undergraduate and graduate), Burris Laboratory School, and the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities.
