To celebrate Missouri Graduate Schools Week, the Graduate School and Sigma Xi will co-sponsor the annual Graduate Research Fair to recognize graduate students' research.

This event provides advanced graduate students the opportunity to present their scholarship and creative work to faculty, staff, administrators, students, family members and community members.  The students' research is presented in poster format so that visitorsmay interact with presenters directly.  Judges will determine which studies deserve awards and special recognition.

New Undergraduate Division.  This year the Graduate Research Fair is going to allow undergraduate researchers to present posters.  The undergraduate students will use the same nomination form as the graduate students.  Each undergraduate presenter must be nominated by a faculty mentor.  Since undergraduates have less experience at writing abstracts and designing posters, potential faculty mentors should anticipate that they will need to devote some time to helping the student prepare for the research fair.  Nominations will not be accepted when accompanied by a poorly prepared abstract.

Awards:  As in the past, the posters will be divided into a minimum of two broad categories: Social sciences/humanities/business/education and math/natural sciences.  These categories may be subdivided, depending on the number of posters submitted.  Judges will determine which studies deserve awards and special recognition.  Within each broad category, a separate set of prizes will be awarded for doctoral, master's, and undergraduate posters.  Sigma Xi will also award prizes for outstanding posters.

DEADLINE TO ENTER:  Monday, March 3, 2014 - 4:30 p.m.
