Spring 2017 Research Fair

Celebrate student research and creativity

The Spring Research Fair focuses on students, showcasing research and creative accomplishments by UNL undergraduate and graduate students.

Faculty, staff, students and the public are welcome to attend any events listed on the schedule, and we also encourage you to keep an eye out for #ResearchFair on Twitter.

Submit your successes

Because recognizing student successes is at the heart of the Spring Research Fair, we request your assistance in gathering information about graduate and undergraduate student achievements from the last calendar year (2016) to be listed in the Student Awards Booklet. Submit successes by March 10 for inclusion in the booklet.
