Graduate School Government (GSG) is pleased to announce this year’s Graduate Research Colloquium (GRC), which will take place Tuesday, March 29, and Wednesday, March 30, 2022. Registration is open through Monday, February 28, 2022, at 11:59 p.m.
GRC offers a unique opportunity for graduate students to showcase their research across the campus-wide community and work on their presentation skills for upcoming conferences. Students can give oral presentations, present posters or do both. The event will be held in a pseudo-hybrid mode. Many conferences have adopted a hybrid model due to the pandemic; this will be an excellent opportunity for participants to get familiar with that scenario. Poster presentations will be in person and the oral presentations will be virtual. Judges from a similar field will score presentations and provide valuable insight and feedback on how the students can improve.
Cash prizes are available for the top three places in both oral and poster presentations: $300 for first place, $200 for second and $100 for third.
Poster presentations are from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 29 in the MUB ballroom. GSG will cover the cost of printing posters for this year’s event so don’t let that prevent you from participating! Virtual oral presentations — a 12-minute live talk followed by a Q&A session (no pre-recorded video presentations) — will take place on both days of the colloquium.
The event will concludes with the annual GRC Awards Banquet. All participants and judges are invited. The banquet will also be held in the hybrid mode so that people may join the awards ceremony virtually on Wednesday, March 30, following the closing of GRC.
