The Graduate School at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) hosted its annual UAH Graduate Poster Session in the Student Services Building on the UAH campus, a part of the University of Alabama System. The competition was open to graduate students across the disciplines and attracted participants from a wide variety of research and creative scholarship. Winning entries were selected by faculty judges from the Colleges of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, Education, Engineering, Nursing and Science. Graduate participants who converted their current research into the most compelling presentations took home cash prizes.

“This is a unique opportunity for our graduate students to engage with the broader UAH community and to share their research with peers and faculty judges,” says Simone Frazier, UAH graduate resource coordinator. “This highly interactive event provides recognition of our students’ hard work and also offers them a chance to hone their research communication skills.”
