The Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) is calling for faculty judges. We welcome volunteers to judge our silver anniversary event, the 25th Annual Graduate & Professional Student Research Forum! Faculty judges will be notified of their assigned presentation sessions by April 10, 2023.
To volunteer as a judge, please sign up here.
About the Annual Student Research Forum
Each year, the GPSA awards research and travel grants to students to support projects that directly affect their degree program and make a contribution to their discipline. In 2022-2023, over $200,000 was budgeted to support graduate and professional student research and conference travel. The Annual Research Forum is an opportunity for students to share their GPSA-sponsored work with the UNLV community. Of course, this Forum is open to all graduate and professional students wishing to share their research, practice their presentation skills, or obtain constructive comments on their work from faculty.
*Participation in the Annual Research Forum is a requirement for students who received GPSA funding during the 2022-2023 academic year.
