High-achieving students of UH Mānoa will present their research proposals at an event called Proposal Conference, to take place on Friday, December 7, at the Shidler College of Business on the UH Mānoa campus. The event is free and open to the public. Students will interact with the public and give presentations of their research from 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony.
The day-long event will showcase research proposals in academic fields, including Chemistry, Marketing, and Pacific Island Studies. Presenters are Honors students and will be judged on the merit of their preliminary research and findings, oral presentations, and poster displays. One student will take home the top accolade, Best Overall Presentation.
The Honors Program has promoted undergraduate student research at UH Mānoa since it was founded in 1960. It provides opportunities for talented and motivated students to excel in their academic studies. Honors students complete a challenging inquiry-based curriculum that encourages learning through independent research and creative expression. Honors students have access to smaller classes, and greater individual attention from university faculty.
