We are pleased to announce that the 18th annual Ruhlman Conference will be held on Wednesday, April 30, 2014.
Students must submit their application through the online application system, which can be accessed via the My Wellesley Portal. Upon accessing the portal, a link to the application can be found in the “Administrivia” box, which is under the “Students” tab.
Applications, including a short project description and preliminary title, are due by noon on December 16, 2013. Proposals may be submitted by either individuals or groups, and may arise from any significant on-campus learning experience. Faculty members who would like to plan a class-related presentation and wish to hold a place should contact Kristen Gallagher (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the December 16th application deadline. Successfully submitted applications and placeholder requests will generate a confirmation email that will be sent to all applicants and faculty sponsors within 48 hours after the application system has been closed.
Please note that faculty sponsors must agree to read and comment on drafts of abstracts and to help the student prepare for her presentation.
A final title and a formal abstract will be due at noon on Monday, February 10, 2014 via the online application system. After February 10th, faculty sponsors will be required to approve final titles and formal abstracts via the online application system; instructions will be emailed to sponsors at that time. Please note that this will be the only approval period for faculty sponsors.
After February 10, the system will be open to advisors, for approval of final abstracts and titles. Your faculty advisor MUST approve the final abstract and title, or you will not be eligible to give your presentation at the Ruhlman Conference. There will be an announcement in the second semester about applying for the late-breaking poster session.
Please send your questions and comments to email@example.com. We look forward to your participation in this celebration of student achievement!
