The University of Toledo’s Graduate Student Association is accepting registrations for its sixth annual Midwest Graduate Research Symposium.

The symposium will be held Saturday, March 21, in the Memorial Field House and the Student Union on UT’s Main Campus.

“This is a great opportunity for graduate students to not only showcase their research, but to see research being done by other students across the nation,” said Jennifer Solanics, UT graduate assistant in the Office of Equity, Diversity and Community Engagement.

The event will feature research presentations, networking, and the chance to foster intercollegiate friendships and collaborations.

“This event gives students the chance to meet and network with individuals they may not have met,” Solanics said. “The relationships formed will have a positive impact on the participants for years to come.”

Post-baccalaureate students from every discipline are invited to register for the opportunity to present their research at the event. Undergraduate students are encouraged to register for a select number of available spots.

Registrations must be submitted by Saturday, Feb. 28. Participants will be notified of acceptance by Saturday, March 14.

All participants will receive a certificate and an invitation to the awards dinner following the symposium.

The top three poster presentations and oral presentations will be announced at the dinner, and the winners will each receive a plaque and a certificate. Additionally, the Association for Women in Science award will be given to the top woman with a STEM field presentation along with a $100 prize.
