Presenters are eligible to win one of several $100 Dean's Choice awards.

To present your project at Research Day, log into your Google Apps @ UA account. Then complete the electronic Research Day Registration Form.  You do not need to request permission to view the form.

Create a Poster

Your first choice for help with creating your poster/presentation should be your faculty mentor. Posters are usually created in MS Powerpoint and converted to Adobe pdf for printing. Stop by 301 Bunnell to see a variety of poster styles displayed in the hallway. Sample posters can be downloaded here and here. Finished posters are usually 2 x 3 feet or 3 x 4 feet in size, either portrait or landscape. Posters with dark backgrounds are more expensive to print than posters with light backgrounds. UAF Printing Services can trim your poster; they are located in 131 Bunnell.

Graduate and Post-Doctoral Students

Due to space constraints, we cannot accommodate graduate and post-doctoral posters on Research Day.
