Vanderbilt Research Fair


The 2017 Vanderbilt University Research Fair provides undergraduate students a chance to showcase their research work in a campus wide celebration of undergraduate student research. The fair is sponsored by the Vanderbilt Undergraduate Summer Research Program (VUSRP) and the Littlejohn Family, the Office of the Provost, and the School of Engineering.

WHEN: 4:30pm – 6:30pm, Thursday, September 14th, 2017.

WHERE: Student Life Center

The deadline to submit your poster title to the research fair using the online application form is noon on September 4th.

Posters will be presented by students participating in several summer programs on campus, as well as students involved in research during the academic year. Students who have been involved in off-campus projects will also present.

We anticipate that many students will have already prepared a poster as part of their research programs. But, for those who need to prepare a poster especially for this event, detailed information on poster design is available here. Guidelines on presenting your poster can also be found here.

A poster competition will be held and awards given to students who give the best overall presentation of their research work. The rubric that will be used for poster judging can be found here: Poster Judging Rubric.
