  • Be part of a statewide event where students from other Kansas public four-year institutions will present research. 
  • Receive professional development in creating a research poster.

  • Chance to have your research viewed by state legislators. 

Applicants must:

  • Have completed research under the guidance of a K-State faculty mentor. 
  • Follow the methodology of the appropriate academic discipline. 
  • Have research of sufficient quality to be presented at a professional academic meeting.
