CALL for PROPOSALS

Deadline: March 15, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.

The Grad Forum provides an excellent professional development opportunity for graduate students to share their research with a broad audience of faculty, other graduate students, undergraduates, and members of the larger community.

Graduate students may participate in one of three ways:

 

POSTERS

Prizes:

$200 to first place in each category

$200, People’s Choice Winner

Poster presentations summarize research and provide a starting place for discussion. The layout typically combines brief text with tables, graphs, and/or images. Researchers will be available at the event to discuss and answer questions.

To participate, submit the following:

  • Title
  • 150 word abstract summarizing your research findings, scholarship, or creative work
  • 140 character (25-28 word) thumbnail summary-may be similar to your title

Posters developed for past presentations or in development for future presentation at other conferences are welcome. 

3MT

Prizes:

$500, first place
$300, second place
$200, third place
$100, People’s Choice

The Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition gives students one slide and a maximum of three minutes to present their research. This experience cultivates students’ capacity to effectively explain their research concisely and in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

To participate, submit the following:

  • Title
  • 150 word abstract summarizing your research findings, scholarship, or creative work
  • 140 character (25-28 word) thumbnail summary-may be similar to your title

First, second and third place winners have the opportunity to compete in the statewide 3MT competition.

PANELS

Prizes:

$400 per winning panel

Panels are comprised of talks by three to five graduate students (total presentation time is 1 hour). To be competitive for prizes, the presentation must share a common theme and represent at least two different degree programs.

Each panel must designate a panel moderator.

The panel moderator must submit:

  • Title for panel presentation
  • 300 word abstract describing the panel theme
  • Title for individual talk
  • 140 character thumbnail summary

All other participating panelists must submit:

  • Title
  • 140 character thumbnail summary of individual talk

      Please include the name and email address of the panel moderator.

 

Submit your Research Proposal for the 2019 Graduate Research Forum by March 15th, 1:00 p.m.
