MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University graduate and undergraduate students who want to participate in the upcoming K-State Research Forum should submit their research abstracts online by 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30, at

Kevin Lease, interim associate dean of the Graduate School, which assists in coordinating the forum, said students from all disciplines and departments are invited to participate. The 2009 K-State Research Forum will be Friday, March 6, in the K-State Union.

"Last year, the research forum attracted 65 students from 20 departments," Lease said. "The annual forum provides students a place to present their research before a panel of faculty judges."

Students will compete for cash prizes, and 10 graduate student winners will have an opportunity to present their research to members of the Kansas Board of Regents, state legislators, the governor and the interested public as part of the Capitol Graduate Research Summit, which is March 12 in Topeka.

Research by students from K-State, University of Kansas, Wichita State University and the KU Medical School is featured at the annual event.
