Graduate Student Poster Award

Award Info


About the Award

The Graduate Student Poster Awards recognize graduate poster presentations characterized by excellence in research, clarity in presentation, and personal knowledge in a discussion with the judges at the annual convention.

First place award winners will receive a $100 honorarium. In addition, the seven first place winners will also have their posters prominently displayed at the SPSP Annual Convention with their research showcased to the SPSP community. Seven runner-ups will receive a $50 honorarium.

Selection Process

In the first round of judging, posters will be peer reviewed for effective layout and visual presentation. The top 50% of submissions will advance to the second round, where peer reviewers will judge applicants’ award submission statements and posters. Around 40 submissions from this round will be selected as finalists, who will present their posters during the first poster session of the SPSP Annual Convention and be interviewed by several secret judges (typically faculty members). On the basis of the judges' scores, seven first-place winners and seven runners-up will be selected.
