  • Posters

    GRaSP Poster sessions will feature approximately 96 poster presentations by advanced graduate students. While poster presentations are common to some disciplines (STEM, education, etc.), our goal is to encourage participation across the university and to include all areas. To encourage this, the selection committee will not insist on a particular format for the posters, but will instead consider each in relation to the research or creative products associated with its discipline. The Graduate School and GRaSP committee members will work with the selected students to help prepare them for this unique opportunity. During the event, the posters will be judged by a panel of external judges from a variety of disciplines. Preference will be given to students with advanced standing in their respective programs.

  • Publications

    One of the initiatives associated with GRaSP day will be awards for best scholarly publication by best and brightest graduate students from our University. GRaSP Publications may include books, essays, short stories, poems, scholarly articles (published in journals, books, or conference proceedings). Exceptional, publication-quality manuscripts will be considered if they are from a field in which publication during a graduate career is unusual. The submissions will be judged by a panel of internal and external judges, and the winning publications will be actively promoted by the University.

    NOTE TO APPLICANTS: Winners will be announced at the GRaSP Awards Presentation and Reception. Applicants will not be contacted regarding their status prior to this event. If you have any additional questions, contact the Graduate School at
