Graduate Student Government (GSG) is pleased to announce this year’s Graduate Research Colloquium (GRC), being held March 29 and 30.
The GRC offers a unique opportunity for graduate students to showcase their research across the campuswide community and work on their presentation skills for upcoming conferences. Students can give oral presentations, present posters or do both.
Due to the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic restrictions, the event will be held in a pseudo-hybrid mode. Many conferences have been happening in the hybrid models due to the pandemic, so this is an excellent real-life opportunity to familiarize yourself with the format.
Poster presentations will be held in person and oral presentations will be held virtually. Judges from a similar field as the presenter will score all the presentations. They will provide valuable insight and feedback on how the students can improve their presentations.
Cash prizes are available for the top three presenters in both the oral and poster categories (first is $300, second is $200 and third is $100). Registration is open now and closes Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m. Register today!
Poster presentations will take place from 5-8 p.m. March 29 in the MUB Ballroom. GSG will be covering the cost of printing posters this year. The oral presentations will be held virtually during both days of the colloquium; they should comprise 12 minutes of live talking (no prerecorded video presentations) followed by a Q&A session.
The GRC will be capped off with the annual GRC Awards Banquet on March 30 following the closing of the event. The banquet will also be held in hybrid mode and all participants and judges are invited to attend in person or virtually if they want.
