Graduate Student Forum

Welcome to the Department of Entomology’s Graduate Student Forum!

The Graduate Student Forum serves several purposes:

  • Encourages graduate students to share with colleagues and others in the academic community
  • Provides professional development experience for students
  • Allows students to practice their presentation skills

Participants are given 12 minutes to present their research presentation and 3 minutes to facilitate questions from the audience. The top three presentations are given a certificate and cash prize.

 Congratulations to the Winners of the Twenty-Second Annual Forum!
