Fifth Annual Research Conference (ARC)
April 14-16, 2014
Earlham’s Fifth Annual Research Conference (ARC) will be held April 14-16, 2014. The ARC is designed to showcase the work of Earlham students from all disciplines, as the purpose of research and creative activity is to share our work with the larger academic community.
This conference will allow students working on Ford-Knight projects, senior projects, independent research projects, or even first-year research projects to have a supportive and receptive audience for the presentation for their work. Thus, students from every major, field, department and program are invited to submit proposals for presentations and performances. During the conference, students will share their work in panels organized by topic or through poster presentations.
Research Grant Awards:
Five research grants of up to $250 are available for expenses related to research such as books, equipment, supplies, traveling expenses and copying costs. All students who receive a research grant award will be expected to present their work at the 2014 conference.
