Graduate students, faculty and staff: Participate in the K-State GRAD Forum

Submitted by Abhinav Chand

The Graduate Student Council will host the annual K-State Graduate Research, Arts and Discovery Forum, or the K-State GRAD Forum, on March 8 and 9. Registration for graduate students to participate is open through Jan. 31.

The K-State GRAD Forum is an annual showcase of K-State graduate student research, scholarly work and discovery. The event provides graduate students from all disciplines an opportunity to share their work with the K-State community and to gain experience presenting their work in a professional setting. Students may give a talk or a poster presentation. Participants are expected to give their presentations in person on the Manhattan campus. Virtual presentation accommodations can be made for online students and those studying at the K-State Olathe and Salina campuses.

The event is a professional development opportunity, and participating graduate students can build interdisciplinary connections, enhance their communication and presentation skills, and have the chance to win a scholarship.

Graduate students interested in giving a presentation should visit the K-State GRAD Forum webpage to access the registration form and view more information. Participants must upload an abstract of their presentation in the registration form. Registration will be open through Jan. 31.

K-State faculty, staff and postdocs are invited to volunteer to serve as judges for the K-State GRAD Forum. Judges select winning presentations and provide feedback to presenters that supports their continued growth in presenting their research or scholarly work. If you are available to serve as a judge on March 8 or 9, complete the judge volunteer form to indicate your interest and availability.
