CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum

CFAES Undergraduate (Virtual) Research Poster Competition

will be held April 5-8, 2021

The CFAES Undergraduate Research Poster Competition provides a means for undergraduate students to share their research with members and friends of the OSU community; recognizes the significant contributions to research by OSU undergraduates; and facilitates exchange between students, faculty, and the public.  

Students enrolled in any undergraduate degree program at OSU are invited to participate, provided they have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher and are engaged in supervised research projects in the area of their major. If a research project is ongoing and will not be completed in time, a research-in-progress summary may be submitted in lieu of an abstract.

  • Research that has been presented in another venue is welcome
  • By submitting an abstract submission form, the student agrees to present the research at the competition
  • Final presentations are in the Sway format and will be judged by faculty
