GSE Research Symposium ~ Call for Proposals Extended

We have some exciting news regarding the GSE Student Research Symposium.  We were notified that we have won an SBI Programming Grant that will allow partial funding assistance for student poster presentations.  This will help alleviate some of the cost associated with printing posters.

With this news, we have decided to extend the Call for Proposals deadline to Thursday, March 13th at 11:59pm.  By extending the deadline by one week and providing funding assistance, it is our hope that we sill see an increase of both, poster and panel presentation proposals this year.  An updated proposal form is attached here.

If you are planning a presentation at a spring or summer conference, this is a wonderful forum for practicing and polishing presentations. We also encourage adapted class projects and papers.

Additionally, if you are interested in serving on the Symposium Planning Committee, please visit the following website for more information.  There are many ways you can help out and the time commitment you would provide is up to you!
