Mary Lou Fulton Mentored Student Research Conference to be April 13

The College of Family, Home and Social Sciences at Brigham Young University will host the 2nd Annual Mary Lou Fulton Mentored Student Research Conference Thursday, April 13, from 11 a.m. to noon and 2 to 3 p.m. in 3220-3224 Wilkinson Student Center.

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

The conference will showcase research projects through student poster displays. Judges will determine the best posters, and winners will receive cash prizes.

The research conference began in 2005 with the creation of the Mary Lou Fulton Chair in Family, Home and Social Sciences. Other components of the chair include mentored-learning fellowships, support for student travel to academic conferences, internship support, computing and technology support, the Mary Lou Fulton Young Scholar Award, the Mary Lou Fulton Professorship and need-based tuition grants for disabled children to attend BYU’s preschool and kindergarten.
