Graduate Showcase

Graduate Showcase

The Graduate Showcase highlights the incredible research, scholarly, and creative activity happening among the graduate student community at UNLV.  During graduate school, students spend countless hours researching, studying, learning from others in their field, creating new knowledge, and preparing for their future even as they improve ours. This is the value of graduate education: it changes lives, provides leaders in every field, and has a positive impact on the collective whole. The presenters at Graduate Showcase are an example of this.

Students interested in showcasing their research, creative or scholarly activity can submit this Graduate Showcase Application Form by Friday, March 24, 2023. Applicants will receive a notification by Friday, March 31, 2023.

The 5th Annual Graduate Student Showcase will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2023. Presenters will be awarded a $1,500 scholarship.
