Blog post

Length is variable but should be at least 2-3 paragraphs.
Start by providing context for the reader: Describe your research and its impact so that a high school student or reporter could understand it (2-3 sentences max). Please include your name, major(s) and any minor(s) so that we can properly identify you.

We want to know the details about your experience:

  • Tell us about your trip: where did you go, and why?
  • How did the trip help you move forward in your research?
  • Did you receive any feedback on your work? Tell us about it!
  • How did the trip contribute to your professional development? Any opportunities to network?
  • Did you meet peers and/or experts in your field? How did that help you?
  • Did you present your work at a conference? If so, tell us what you have learned from that experience.
  • If you attended a conference, do you have any advice about this event to share with other students?
  • If you visited an archive, do you have any tips about how best to prepare for the experience?
  • What’s next for you?


  • Submit one high-resolution, print-quality digital photo (JPG or PNG; use the highest resolution setting available on your camera). If possible we'd prefer an action shot – for example, we’d love to see a photograph of you presenting your work at a conference, conducting research in the field or working in an archive.
  • Be sure to submit image as a separate file (not embedded in a Word document). You can upload one photo on the form; feel free to submit more to
