Want to win $1000 at the UO Grad Forum?

One way to participate in this year’s Grad Forum is to collaborate with an interdisciplinary group. But what if you aren’t part of a group yet?

We are connecting individuals who wish to participate in the Grad Forum but don’t already have an interdisciplinary group in mind.

Why submit a proposal?

  • Engage with other graduate students across disciplines in this unique venue.
  • Discuss your own work and the work of your peers with a broad community of scholars that includes your fellow graduate students, faculty, and professionals from on and off campus.
  • Put together a presentation that earns you a prize of up to $1,000. This year, the Grad Forum features a competitive poster session and an opportunity for group panel presenters to compete.
  • Build your presentation experience, hone your elevator pitch, and participate in a research conference free of registration and travel costs.


Here’s how it works:

Go onto the Grad Forum’s facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/events/1590473307848804/?context=create&previousaction=create&source=49&sid_create=2813309300) and post your one sentence poster/presentation idea while looking for other individuals interested in similar topics. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people!

Be sure to get your group and abstract together by January 9th.

This year, the Grad Forum will be organized around four themes:

  1. Science and the Social Good
  2. Academy, Race and (In)Equality: Bridging Research and Practice
  3. Imaginative Design, Art, and Performance
  4. Human Rights, Development, and Sustainability
