Celebration of Scholarship

Save the Date: The 6th Annual Celebration of Scholarship will be held April 20, 2017.

Application Site Opens: November 1, 2016

The Lewis University Celebration of Scholarship is a symposium to celebrate research, scholarly work and creative endeavors of Lewis students and faculty. Work created in 2016 and 2017 will be eligible for consideration.

This on-campus symposium is a rich opportunity for both students and faculty to present scholarly work to a student, faculty, and staff audience in celebration of the academic excellence that is central to the Mission of the University. Undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines are encouraged to submit posters, present at a concurrent session, or share a creative work.

With Lewis University in its 9th decade, it is fitting that we communicate across the campus the ideas and scholarly work that is shared every day in the classroom. Follow this web site for continued updates throughout the coming months.

All student projects must be developed under direction of a faculty mentor. If you have any questions, please consult with your faculty mentor. Submissions require formal approval by your faculty mentor.
