Research Posters Competition

Each year at the GMiS Conference, college students have the opportunity to showcase their latest research findings through a poster presentation to STEM professionals. Recognized as Research Scholars, students are encouraged to present individual and unclassified research performed as part of their dissertation, master thesis, senior project, co-op, internship or research experiences. The purpose of the GMiS Research Poster Competition is to:
  • Provide a premiere, national forum for traditionally underserved and underrepresented STEM undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their technical research talent

  • Challenge students to communicate their research with a balanced technical/lay audience perspective

  • Stimulate interest in scientific and technical research

  • Encourage networking among students and STEM professionals with similar research interests

  • Increase public awareness of the relevance of STEM research and its benefits to society


The 2023 GMiS Research Poster Competition (RPC) will be held in-person on Thursday, October 12 (Graduate Students) and Friday, October 13 (Undergraduate Students).

Undergraduate and graduate students, from traditionally underrepresented groups in STEM, are invited to submit an abstract and present a poster on their ongoing/current research project. Participants will also have the option to submit a three-minute YouTube video of their poster to be showcased online. Finalists will present their research to STEM professionals from industry, academia, and government agencies.
