Please note that both podium and poster sessions involve a 5-10 minute presentation. Posters should be no more than 48" inches in size.

Faculty interested in supporting the Research Forum as judges may contact either the GPSA Vice President and Chair of the Research Forum Committee, and/or the GPSA Manager, at any time during the year. Faculty are encouraged to come support their students and attend the forum sessions.

Each year, the GPSA awards funding for research and conference travel to support projects that directly affect a student's degree program and make a contribution to his/her discipline. In 2019–2020, $170,000.00 was budgeted for student research and conference travel. Participation in the annual Research Forum is a requirement for students who receive GPSA funding. The forum is open to all UNLV graduate and professional students.
