If you hope to participate in either WSU Academic Showcase or the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) Research Exposition, submit your abstract by tomorrow: Wednesday, Jan. 15.

These annual poster sessions give faculty, staff, and graduate and professional students a forum for presenting their research, scholarship, or creative work to the WSU academic community. Committees of scholars review abstracts and by mid‑February will notify applicants who are accepted to participate.

Both Academic Showcase and GPSA Research Exposition will be held Thursday, March 26, at WSU Pullman. The sessions are part of Showcase, a weeklong event that celebrates academic excellence.

Academic Showcase

This poster session welcomes WSU faculty, staff, and graduate/professional students from all disciplines, campuses, and Extension offices statewide.

GPSA Research Exposition

Both a poster session and scholarship competition, this event is exclusively for graduate and professional students enrolled at the WSU Pullman campus.

The University encourages Pullman graduate and professional students to apply to both events. Although a student may only participate in one, applying to both yields the best possibility for acceptance.

How to apply

Submit abstracts of your work—each 250 words or less—by tomorrow: Wednesday, Jan. 15. Deliver your abstracts online:

Each event has its own eligibility requirements and evaluation rubrics. Applicants should carefully review guidelines and edit abstracts accordingly.
