Registration for the 2016 Ohio University Student Research and Creative Activity Expo is now open. This year’s Expo will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Thursday, April 14, at the Convocation Center. To participate, interested students must register online at www.ohio.edu/studentexpo before Sunday Feb. 28, 11:59:59 pm. Registration will be capped at 800 presenters.
The annual event attracts more than 700 student presenters from dozens of disciplines. More than 2,000 students, faculty, staff, community members and local middle school and high school students attend to learn more about how Ohio University students are engaged in research, scholarship and creative activity.
Who can participate? Participation is open to all undergraduate, graduate and medical students, as well as postdoctoral fellows, on the Athens and regional campuses.
What can be presented? Posters, exhibits, performances, film screenings and other presentation formats are welcome.
Are students eligible for awards? Awards will be given for the best presentations in each category: $200 (1st prize) and $100 (2nd prize). Categories are limited to no more than 12 presentations and assigned by discipline. For sessions with undergraduate and post-degree students, judges may elect to give two 1st prizes (one each for an undergraduate and a post-degree student). In this case a 2nd place prize will not be awarded. In addition, several sponsors will offer special award categories.
Who sponsors the event? The Student Expo is sponsored by the Office of the Research Division, Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, Office of the President and the University Libraries.
