Thank you for your interest in joining the UCLA Pilipino Alumni Association (PAA) and Pilipino American Graduate Student Association (PAGaSA) for networking with P/Filipino/a/x researchers and learning about their work at our Pilipinx Student Research Symposium entitled “Shedding Light and Breaking Boundaries: Pilipinx Research for Community Transformation” Spring Quarter, Friday May 14, 2021 from 11:30am-3pm.
After opening our event with a keynote speaker, we will share a resource list of Pilipinx researchers and celebrate undergraduate students who will participate in the UCLA Undergraduate Research Week.

We will conclude with a networking mixer where participants can build connections beyond the symposium.
