The UNCG Graduate School in partnership with the Office of Research and Economic Development will host the 3rd annual Graduate Research and Creativity Expo: “Scholarship That Matters” on April 9, 2015, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm in the Elliott University Center at UNCG.

The Graduate School and the Office of Research and Economic Development invite you to attend the 2015 Graduate Research and Creativity Expo, April 9, 2015, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm in the Elliott University Center at UNCG.

The showcase is an opportunity for graduate students to present their research, talents and/or creativity to non-traditional audiences through posters, short colloquies, or videos, and win $1,000!

We encourage graduate students to  consider submitting community-engaged research projects!

New this Year! All registrants will have the opportunity to post their resume/CV and research or creativity abstract through the Career Services Center in The University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Resume Book that will be provided to any employer or other external entity attending the event.

Additionally, if students have concerns about releasing valuable research information too early, the Office of Innovation Commercialization and North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center will be providing assistance on claiming intellectual property and offering workshops on “pitching” your talent to new opportunities and potential employers.

The showcase is organized into competitions in the following categories:  Natural, Physical, and Mathematical Sciences; Health Sciences; Social Sciences; Humanities; Creative Arts; and Professional Programs.

Winners will be chosen and awarded $1000 in EACH category.
