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.
