At the annual Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research, you'll have the opportunity to share your scholarly work with others at North Central, as well as the community at large. Regardless of your major -- from French to biology to international business -- you'll gain experience presenting your work in a professional forum to people from a variety of different fields and backgrounds -- a skill that will be valuable to you when you leave North Central. Many past presenters have credited their participation in undergraduate research as something that set them apart when they applied for graduate and professional schools.
Established in 1998, the Rall Symposium is a forum for North Central students to present their original scholarship. It is held in May and is open to students from across the College. Each year, the Rall Symposium welcomes a keynote speaker of national reputation and gives students an opportunity to present themselves as scholars to the wider community.
Many Rall participants have pursued internal grants for their projects, such as the Richter Grant Program.
