UI Graduate Student Senate seeks students to present research at forum

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa graduate students and undergraduates in the Honors Program are invited to submit proposals for research to be displayed and presented at the second annual Graduate Research Forum. The deadline for submissions is March 1 and the forum, sponsored by the UI Graduate Student Senate, will be held April 12.

At the forum, student work will be showcased through panel presentations, poster displays, art exhibits, film screenings and performances of dance, music and theater. Students may submit work in the following categories: fine arts and performing arts; humanities; social sciences; physical and mathematical sciences and engineering; and life sciences.

This year's forum coincides with the centennial of the UI Graduate College, which is providing $6,000 in prizes for outstanding entries in each field. UISG is also supporting this event.
