Winners Named for 2023 Research Symposium
The 16th annual Graduate Student Research Symposium, the signature Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week event, was held at the McKimmon Center on April 5.
Co-sponsored at NC State by the Graduate School and Graduate Student Association, the research symposium recognizes the importance of graduate education and research to the university’s mission.
Nearly 200 NC State graduate students presented their research projects, and 28 were selected as top performers after being evaluated by judges. Judging criteria were based on the quality of their research, the effectiveness of their poster presentation, their oral communication skills, and the creativity and aesthetic appeal of their poster.
Abstracts for all student posters can be found online: 2023 symposium abstracts.
All winners receive a plaque and a cash prize. First place winners receive $500; second place, $350; and third place, $250.
