Students can submit a maximum of two abstracts as primary author. Original research conducted in conjunction with graduate studies is the expectation for each abstract submission. If your presentation involved data from human subjects, you will need to obtain approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB). For assistance with the IRB process, contact the professor guiding your research or the Office of Institutional Review Board.
Members of the 2017-2018 Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board will conduct a “blind-review” of abstract submissions for the 2018 Research Colloquium, selecting one outstanding abstract from each of the eight academic departments in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences. These top eight students will receive a $500 professional development award for conducting a PechaKucha style oral presentation at the colloquium (20 slides, 20 seconds each for 6 minutes and 40 second total followed by 3 minute 20 second question and answer). Selection of additional abstracts will allow students to participate in the poster session, which will be held during the research colloquium. Students participating in the poster session also have the opportunity to receive professional development funds, provided by the Dean and Academic Departments.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 350 words and submitted electronically by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Abstracts should not include tables, figures or intext citations.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Graduate Student Advisory Board at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a great opportunity to showcase your research as a graduate student in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences.
*If more than one author is on an abstract selected for an oral presentation, the award will be divided equally among the authors.
