Student Poster Session
We will be hosting our 6th annual undergraduate student poster session, a 60-minute joint session designed to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to display and present their research to professionals in the field. Students are encouraged to submit proposals describing their research in any area of psychology. While the research need not be completed at the time of submission, results must be available by the date of presentation. Each student research project will be evaluated by two professional psychologists and the top-rated project will be acknowledged with an award.
