Montana State University graduate student research extends to all corners of the globe. Students are doing everything from building components for NASA satellites to producing films for National Geographic to studying glacial lakes in Antarctica. The public is invited to find out more about graduate student research at the Graduate Student Research Rendezvous at MSU on Thursday, October 29.
Taking place from 1:00 – 3:00 pm in Strand Union Ballroom C, the Research Rendezvous is an open event that will feature the research of graduate students from all academic colleges. The event consists of a poster session and a competition. Participants will compete for prizes with the first place winner in each category receiving a $250 travel grant towards conference participation and the second place winner receiving a $100 grant for scholarly expenses.
“This is a great opportunity for graduate students to grow professionally and for the public to learn about the innovative research being conducted at MSU,” said Karlene Hoo, Dean of the Graduate School. “Montana State University’s research enterprise is fueled by the scholarship of skilled graduate students and graduate student research has played an instrumental role in MSU’s ability to earn and maintain a ‘very high research activity’ classification by the Carnegie Foundation.”
The Graduate Student Research Rendezvous is a new component to the third annual Graduate Student Summit being held at MSU on October 29 and 30. The focus of the summit is to provide students with professional development training to complement their graduate education and research experience.
