On behalf of the AbGradCon 2019 Organizing Committee, I'm excited to announce that AbGradCon 2019 will be hosted by the University of Utah from July 22nd - 26th, 2019. This year's theme will be Science Communication! Applications will open in January, with a deadline on March 15th, 2019.

The Proposal Writing Retreat (PWR), formerly known as the Research Focus Group (RFG), will take place at from July 19th - 22nd, 2019. Applicants for AbGradCon will be able to apply for PWR at the same time as they submit their AbGradCon application. We have funds to support a limited number of participants, although we can accommodate more participants if they are able to provide some or all of their own funding.

Please check back with the website regularly for announcements including the abstract submission deadline, additional details on the PWR, and info on the Undergraduate Poster Competition.
