Presidential Inauguration Research/Scholarship Poster Competition

President Sullivan recognizes the central role of knowledge creation and dissemination in the life of a great comprehensive university.  To recognize research and scholarship as a central part of the UVa mission during the Presidential Inauguration in April, we will hold a Pan-University Research Poster Competition to highlight high-impact and innovative growth areas for UVa research.  A diverse committee will select 5 “finalists” in each of the 7 categories, and we will display these 35 finalists during the inauguration event.

The committee will view all of the finalist posters and select the winners in each of the 7 categories, with each top poster receiving a $500 prize (payable as cash or unrestricted PTAO), with additional prizes for best Undergraduate & best Graduate submission of $500.   President Sullivan will present the prizes to the winners at the inauguration.  All entries will be posted on the inauguration website to broadly showcase the research of the entire university.

We would like you to circulate this announcement broadly to spread the word of the competition.  Additionally, we urge you to reach out to your most active researchers and encourage them to submit posters for their research.  This is an opportunity to showcase your research and make your ideas visible to the world, on the public occasion of our first new UVa President in 20 years.
