Opportunities for Graduate-Level Research 

Graduate Research Symposium

The Graduate Research Symposium combines Research Evening and the annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition.

Research Evening

Research Evening provides graduate students from across the university the opportunity to present their research projects. Participating graduate students are also eligible for the Hutchinson-Lahman Research Award.

The purpose of the award is to support graduate students’ dissemination of their research at a national or regional conference. Award winners receive travel funding to present at a professional conference.
