    • The Student Research Symposium recognizes students for original research achievements across a variety of disciplines.
    • All posters are considered for the poster competition, but established research projects (rather than research proposals) are more likely to win.
    • Successful students demonstrate valid investigation and experimentation objectives and methods. Judging and scoring criteria are as follows, with each judging criteria category scored on a scale of 1-10 (10=Outstanding, 8=Very Good, 6=Good, 4=Needs Improvement, 2=Unsatisfactory).
    • There are cash prizes!! Four $100 prizes will be awarded to the top entries by graduate students, and four $100 prizes will be awarded to the top entries by undergraduate students.
