CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum

CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum Poster Competition

April 9, 2024

The CFAES Undergraduate Research Forum 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 in CFAES and the School of Environment and Natural Resources are invited to participate, provided they have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher and are engaged in supervised research projects. Students in other Colleges conducting research in CFAES are also invited to participate. If a research project is ongoing, 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
  • Posters will be judged by faculty, post-docs or graduate students
