View the 2022 Graduate Research Conference Program.

The Graduate Research Conference is a skill building opportunity for SFA graduate students in presenting data, public speaking, and communicating with others about theory and innovative research strategies.

The conference includes:

10- to 12-minute paper presentations

Paper presenters can expect to develop their ideas from a class assignment, paper or research project into an interactive presentation. If desired, presenters may incorporate slides with graphs, pictures, text, etc., using tools like PowerPoint. Each presentation should last 10 to 12 minutes. There will be a question-and-answer period at the end of the paper presentation session.

Poster presentations

Poster presenters will be asked to display their ideas from a class assignment, paper or research project in poster form and will stand next to their posters to explain their project to passersby. The poster session will last an hour and thirty minutes.

Awards

Two Dean's Research Awards will be presented, one for best poster and one for best paper.

  • Student Paper Award: $300
  • Student Poster Award: $300
