On Tuesday, April 5, about 60 of the U’s top doctoral students in more than 40 fields will fill the Great Hall of Coffman Union from noon to 2 p.m. for the fourth annual Doctoral Research Showcase.
Faculty, graduate students, undergraduates considering graduate school, alumni, and the public are invited to attend to learn more about the work of the next generation of innovators, inside and outside of the academy.
The Doctoral Research Showcase spans the disciplines, from science and engineering to the humanities. Participants come from a pool of students who have won competitive university fellowships. The showcase is designed to give them an opportunity to develop their ability to talk with nonspecialists and the public about their work.
The showcase began in 2008 as a way to give greater exposure to the work of the University’s Doctoral Dissertation Fellows. This year for the first time, Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows will also participate.
The Doctoral Research Showcase is sponsored by the Graduate School Fellowship Office.
