Research Poster Competition

Take your research to a broader audience

Women's Research Poster Competition

Each year, IUB students can share their research, present a poster, receive feedback from judges, and network with other researchers in our annual Women’s Research Poster Competition. Entrants compete for prizes in one of five discipline categories in both undergraduate and graduate divisions, as well as a People’s Choice Award.

Thanks to all who participated in 2022 !

The next Women's Research Poster Competition is in April, 2023.
