Murdock College Science Research Conference
Each fall, the Trust sponsors a conference associated with the Murdock College Science Research Program. The conference is hosted by a different Northwest private college or university each year and focuses on science students and faculty from the institutions (now nine in number) funded in this program.This year the 2013 conference will take place November 8 & 9 at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
Wide participation is also extended to science students and faculty from all of the private colleges and universities in the five-state area. Oral and poster research presentations by students form the core of the conference; a talk by a major national research figure is also presented.
Attendance at this conference is by invitation, but private colleges and universities in the Pacific Northwest are encouraged to request an invitation from the Trust if they have science students and faculty who are involved in research and who would like to attend.
