Graduate Research Forum 2018 - Submission

The Fifteenth Annual Graduate Research Forum is an opportunity for graduate students in all disciplines to showcase their research or creative projects in a setting similar to a national conference. Submissions for the poster session may be either a literature review or original research. To promote broad participation in the Graduate Research Forum, an individual may only appear as primary author on one proposal. However, additional co-authorships will be permitted. The submission should be the original work of the author(s). If the presented paper is a result of a collaborative student-faculty project, it is expected that the majority of the research to be presented was completed by the graduate student. Proposals must be received by the stated deadline, Monday, February 13, 2018 - 5:00 p.m. Late submissions will not be accepted. Applicants will be accepted on the basis of the content submitted by the deadline date. Notification of acceptance will be sent via email.
