CSU Student Research Competition to be held at California State University, East Bay
Awards of $250 will be given to the top two undergraduate and graduate students (or student teams) making poster presentations at the Symposium and who have chosen to be judged. Faculty mentors (or mentor teams) will receive $250 in professional development funds.
Students have a variety of options for participation. They may choose to make an oral presentation or a poster presentation. And they may choose to participate and be judged or participate and not be judged. Up to ten oral presentations (from those who choose to be judged) will be selected to compete at the 28th Annual California State University Student Research Competition. Due to the rules of this Competition, only those doing oral presentations are eligible. Travel expenses will be covered for those selected to participate.
Oral Presentation Instructions: Students will be given 10 minutes to make their presentations and five minutes for questions and answers. Up to 10 of these presentations may be selected to forward to the 28th Annual California State University Student Research Competition. This rubric will be used to score the presentations.
Poster Presentation Instructions: Posters should be a maximum of 6’ wide by 4’ tall, and will be placed on easels in the viewing areas. Posters can be printed on a single sheet of paper in the Student Tech Center. Posters will be displayed from 11:00am-1:00pm at which time students will be present to discuss their work with audience and jurors. This rubric will be used to score the poster presentations for those electing to be judged.
All participating students must complete and submit the registration form/300 word summary. All summaries will be included in a Symposium program available on the day of the event.
Students choosing to give oral presentations and who wish to be judged must submit their five page summaries in addition to their 300 word summaries. The rules governing the five page summary are as follows:
- The summary must include the name(s) of the student(s) and the title of the presentation.
- The narrative may not exceed five doubled-spaced pages. Use fonts and margins that ensure legibility.
- Appendices (bibliography, graphs, photographs, or other supplementary materials) may not exceed three pages.
- Research that has human or animal subjects involvement must have appropriate institutional review.
- It is expected that the student will not make an oral presentation by simply reading directly from this summary.
