Hundreds of Texas A&M University graduate and undergraduate students are putting their scholarly work on display March 19-23 in the Memorial Student Center for an opportunity to win prizes and awards for the 21st Annual Student Research Week.

Hosted by the Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC) in conjunction with the Office of Graduate Studies, Vice President for Research, Department of Student Life, and Undergraduate Programs and Academic Services, Student Research Week is the nation’s largest single-university, student-run research symposium.

This year’s events include expert panels, poster presentations, resource tables, presentations by industrial partners, research symposiums and keynote addresses.

With this year’s theme of “Bridging Disciplines, Engaging with Others,” participants, judges and volunteers are working to accomplish the goals of increasing participation at all levels, cutting down on costs by encouraging reusable and recyclable materials, sparking interdisciplinary conversations and increasing the quality of the Student Research Week experience.

Competitors will have an opportunity to win $150, $300 and $500 prizes in addition to special awards.

Closing ceremonies are scheduled for 2-4 p.m. March 23 at the Memorial Student Center.
