Students at Ball State University are widely known for their ability to take disciplinary knowledge learned in the classroom and apply it to high-quality research projects and innovative creative endeavors.

For twenty-six years the Student Symposium at Ball State University has provided students with the opportunity to showcase creative and scholarly projects, while gaining practical experience presenting their work.

The Student Symposium encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about engaging topics from many disciplines around the university. Sponsored Projects Administration has partnered with the University Libraries to utilize their platform and allow the projects to be archivable and more readily available to the wider public. 

Students from Ball State, Burris Laboratory, and the Indiana Academy are invited to submit their research or creative projects in the form of a dynamic digital exhibit, including written and recorded presentations or short video entries.

Presentations are eligible for one of six scholarship awards.
