Maricopa Student Research Conference


What is your big idea?

Submit your research proposal today for your chance to present your idea and win a scholarship!

Estrella Mountain Community College will be hosting this year's Maricopa Student Research Conference.  We are encouraging proposals for presentations that demonstrate research in one of three designated Research Tracks:

  • Humanities/Social Behavioral Sciences
  • Occupational Education
  • Science/Technology/Engineering/Math (S.T.E.M.)

If you have been working with a faculty mentor on an original research project, and you want to present your findings in a formal setting, you can submit a research proposal.

Proposals are due March 2, 2020.

Original research is research that was created by a student or a group of students through their own effort in the current academic year. Student's research is considered original even when it is based on the research of others (properly cited) or if it furthers an idea or theme that was created by someone else.

This event is open to students from all 10 Maricopa Community Colleges, and first place winners in each research track will get a $1,000 scholarship!

If you are planning to attend the Maricopa Student Research Conference but are not a presenter, please register here.
