Apply now to present student-faculty collaborative work at poster session

From Dr. Robert Werner, Geography Department
Bush Grant Committee

Students and faculty: If you have been working on a project recently, you may want to participate in an upcoming Bush Grant-related poster presentation that will give visibility and credibility to faculty-student collaborative work.

Students can include their participation on their résumé, receive a stipend, advance their career and receive recognition for their work. The faculty sponsor also is noted.

Inquiry at UST will be held over the convocation hour from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, in the Owens Science Hall foyer. The student participants are encouraged to invite their friends, colleagues and relatives. Refreshments will be served.

Students who recently have done collaborative work with a faculty member are invited to present their work in this poster session. Their abstracts will be published in a bound volume and distributed for free. Student presenters will receive a stipend of $50 and a printed certificate of participation.

Students should submit the following information via e-mail to Dr. Vanca Schrunk, History Department, by Friday, Sept. 9, (using Microsoft Word in a 12-point Arial font, no graphics, capital letters for names and titles only):

  • Name
  • Title
  • Faculty collaborator
  • Abstract or summary of 300 words maximum

Posters will be foam-core 3' x 5' boards. Plan to use push pins (provided) to attach your materials to the board. Students will stand by their poster for one hour and 15 minutes and discuss their work with anyone passing by who is interested. Further specification about the posters is given on the Bush Foundation Program Grant Web page.

Also on that Web site are ideas about how posters work for the humanities. Faculty, please encourage your students to participate. Also, be sure to stop by the Owens Science Hall foyer on Sept. 15.

Thank you for considering this as a forum for your students’ work. We, on the Bush Grant Committee, see this as a way to raise the visibility of students and faculty alike, and to promote faculty-student collaboration.
