The Graduate School will host a special exhibition of student research in February, with the winning presentations included in a time capsule commemorating Vanderbilt’s yearlong Sesquicentennial celebration.
Ten graduate students will be selected to present their research in the form of five-minute lightning talks at the event. A panel of judges will choose three winners, each of whom will receive a $250 service-free stipend, be featured in a brief video on the Graduate School website, and have their scholarship commemorated in a time capsule as an example of graduate student research excellence taking place at Vanderbilt in 2024.
The Graduate School Sesquicentennial Scholarship Exhibition and Celebration will be on Thursday, Feb. 15, beginning at 4 p.m. in the Alumni Hall Memorial Room.
Submissions are being accepted through Jan. 22. Submission should include a slide deck with 10 slides, a one-page abstract or research summary, and a resume/CV (three-page maximum).
“This event is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to share their innovative research, network with other students and faculty, and gain valuable experience presenting research to a diverse audience,” said C. André Christie-Mizell, vice provost for graduate education, dean of the Graduate School and director of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. “It’s also a great opportunity for students to receive tailored support as they continue to develop their research and scholarship skills.”
The exhibition and celebration of graduate student research will include a catered reception. The event is open to all Graduate School students and faculty.
